Soon they fall in love. Written by
I watched this movie today on DVD. There are several touching stories, I felt I could relate to all the characters quite easily. I was happy to see that it was a "different kind" of teenage love story, the old man's face I could look at forever, so sympathetic it was, and the story of Theresa Chan was uplifting, how could it not be.
I admit there were a few moments where the movie seemed not so strong but by the end of it I found that I really did appreciate the unconventional way of telling a story that this movie provides. That most of the story is told through images or subtitles and without dialogue is refreshing and reminds us that there are several ways to make a good movie. The ending alone is beautiful and sums up the entire film for me. I specifically went into Videodrom not wanting to rent a Hollywood film and I happily did not get one. This is a special movie, forget being critical about the techniques, be carried away by the story.
