Fantastic love story
8 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

A fantastic heartwarming love story based in Hunan China, which not only warmed my heart but also gave me a better understanding of the hardships the Chinese people have lived with. The movie had a wonderful ending, but left me wondering if this was, in fact, a true story.
