Love you on a bicycle

This film is my heart. I have watched it too many times and I am already familiar with it. Every time I take it out, I have to wait for it instead of watching a movie. I wait for every funny joke. Play "Chasing" in front of the piano and wait for him to say to her, "Good male and female, I know that I like you." Then I will laugh at every laugh, when "Chasing" sounds The handsome man intoxicated by his different angles will shed tears of joy in the hot kiss at the end of his confession.

I like this fairy tale, to the point where I can't say the plot briefly, I can recite every detail of it, but I won't tell it, because I can't tell more than the movie itself. If I must say, I can only summarize it in four words, the ideal of love, which is the ideal of love, aside from identity, status, appearance and gender, the only thing I care about is the matching of the soul, the important thing is only you. In a comic that I love about homosexual love, the actor has such a fierce confession, "If it were me ... whether he was a man or a woman ... whether it was a cat or a dog, or a plant OK ... the machine ... I will always find him, and ... I will absolutely love him ", every word of this paragraph is knocked on my heart, makes me smile, in the ideal of love, you are You, heaven and earth, and truth, exist when you say it, worship when you make it, and you love me if you call me. So, staying in the sea with flashing eyes, or some boobs, or a flowing white skirt, it does n't matter anymore, even the dark claustrophobia is not important. Kiss up, in the end, Liang Chen and the beautiful scenery have not failed.

Such a person performs a good show and sings a good song. His friends miss it every year after his death. The fans never forget it. Of course it is not difficult to imagine how he treated people with gentleness and loyalty during his lifetime. Thinking of this, dignity cannot be extricated.

Interviewing Chen Kexin, he said this: "In Hong Kong, whether it is his perfectionism, his private life or his acting skills, our minds are too small."

If we can leave you, how good? Do n't say anything that just passed away like this before the demise of the wind, we are equally happy to see you slowly grow old but calm and peaceful face, will not abandon you, just do n't be so tragic, always remember , Touched, and sighed that he couldn't stop himself, it was too cruel.
