The Red String of Fate, also referred to as the Red String of Marriage, and other variants, is an East Asian belief originating from Chinese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the ankles of those that are destined to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. Often, in Japanese culture, it is thought to be tied around the little finger. According to Chinese legend, the deity in charge of "the red thread, often believed to be the the old lunar matchmaker god, who is in charge of marriages. The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of place, time, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break. This myth is similar to the Western concept of soulmate or a destined flame. Written by Julio Garcia

A honest realistic anti-pop love film
27 March 2018 | by pudget-412-553899See all my reviews

This is definitely a title that deserves a second go from any reviewer who was on a bad day. The film is definitely a honest, realistic and anti-pop script on unfulfilled love and unmet opportunities that fate will endeavour to correspond and correct, regardless of one's utter/innermost intentions. One of the most amazing things I tasted on this film is the fact that I simply dislike love films, with their pop-culture of dreamy realisations and commitments. This one is truthful to the very bone of what life is, there is no sanding of sharp edges, it will hurt the viewer and the characters as much as one's expectations that everything must be happiness. The movie covers very well how certain decisions in life or an inevitability can undermine years of experiences that simply won't take place. Thus, happiness or the possibility of more, purer or different happiness must be reassessed and played against what life juggled at us. Does life deserve to be re-imagined against all aspects that offer one stability and moral standards? This is the decision we all debate through the film itself.

Some people might not like Eugenia "China" Suarez as a person but the way she conducts the character's progression and response to the other actor, Benjamin (also incredibly good), made me stop criticising astonishingly beautiful women who play love parts. She suffers like I'd see any person suffer, he believes to the very last moment like I see any other person willing to believe. The movie is very honest and very good.
