Storyline

A love story that should not have happened. But the Great Cultural Revolution fathered it. As memorable as Romeo and Juliet, their love tied with the same intrusion from their families ¨C the hatred. Until one day, they watched Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. It inspires them. It gives their juiceless love story the hope for fruit. It brings them the determination to bridge through time setting aside the hatred. The same gives them a wait of 12 years. 12 years of changing time, changing era. Friends come and go. Songs sang become old. How much longer for their love can they hold? How much longer for their love with beautiful memory and unforgettable days can they hold? Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Qu Ran: The story that begin with a bang ends with a whimper. For the first time in my life, I felt lonely, like I've been dumped. I decide to stop contacting Hou Jia, afraid that he'd confirm that ending... that he'd tell me things that I didn't want to know.

An outstanding romance movie.
2 December 2005 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Is there exist pure love in modern society? "A Time to Love" answered the question.The story adapted from a real report which was moved Beijing Younth Daily editors. The film is simple.If you believe love,it will moved you.After watching,you will know the classic love.Love is patient,love is waiting,love is mercy. Zhao Wei(played Qu Ran) is absolute outstanding.Her performance is great & moving.An emotional wallop in the final scene will be a classic scene in China film history. Director Huo Jianqi's film always slowly but steady & moving. Cinematography is perfect.It makes you enjoy the pic. The script isn't good,but not bad. Supportting actors is OK,especially Zhang Qian(played Qu Ran's father).
