Simple story, brilliant production!
12 July 2013 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Impressive work by Director Chou!

Despite the simple story, this movie at times funny, at times heartwarming, is very entertaining to watch. Intense, bright colors and beautiful scenes, coupled with singing, dancing and fighting, this production is truly unique to the Asian film industry.

Interesting and beautiful musical that exceeded expectations. What could have been a corny attempt is fun yet rational. The cast members, producers and director really pulled it off. Their efforts are to be admired.

Watch it to believe it!
