A simple and effective tale about love gone wrong.
25 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

A love develops amongst beautiful scenery between two cousins brought up by their grandmother. As they grow, their life draws apart, both taking a different path. How simple a story you say? Yes, but it is how you tell it and director Fei Xie achieves a melancholy beauty by creating real humans that touch your emotions.
