Chu lian wu xian Touch (1997)

Only the lack of roses in every frame prevent this teen romance from being a live action Shojo Manga. Daniel Chan is a poor boy who romances his near-physical twin, the rich Gigi Leung. Sure... See full synopsis »

Storyline

Only the lack of roses in every frame prevent this teen romance from being a live action Shojo Manga.

Daniel Chan is a poor boy who romances his near-physical twin, the rich Gigi Leung. Sure theyre mismatched in income and pedigree, but damn theyre the most physically matched couple ever seen in HK Cinema. Has there ever been two people who looked more like they jumped out of an episode of Here is Greenwood? First Love Unlimited delves into the trials and tribulations of first love, but not without a bunch of useless hijinks plaguing the way. The couple in question meet, but must bear the burden of their disparate lives. At first Daniel lies to cover his financial inadequacies, but Gigi forgives him. Gigis mom (Tina Lau) doesnt, which leads to bigger problems and a lack of understanding that threatens to destroy the fabric of their young, love-obsessed lives. Can the two overcome all this garbage? Yes, but no. But yes, anyway. See the movie to understand what Im talking about. The film...

I wouldn't say there was anything spectacular with this film, but it has to be said it was pleasurable to watch.

The storyline may seem unoriginal (poor boy meets rich girl, fall in love), but there are amusing moments involving several characters, all of whom have been well thought out and add a lot to the movie. The dialogue, to me, seems to have been well put together

Ultimately, though, the movie is just about above average for this genre. It's simple and sentimental, but in comparison to many movies I've seen, this is a lot more watchable.

A note for those who are looking at buying the DVD. The version I have (from Mei Ah) severely lacks all the functionality of DVDs we expect. There is no extras, and the picture and sound quality is what you would get from VHS. In fact the sound quality is fairly poor: Gigi Leung sings and plays the piano a few times in this film, and the sound does run out of tune. Given that I've heard the songs dozens of times before, it does get very annoying. My recommendation is that unless you find the DVD in a bargain basement, stick to the VHS/VCD.
