A boring love story
6 August 2004 | by goodmenSee all my reviews

Plot: A bunch of screenwriter (William So, Jo Koo and Sylvia Chang) want to make a movie about young romance. It was a semi-autobiography of Sylvia Chang love life. Who is play by the beautiful Gigi Leung, her best friend is Karen Mok. At the beginning we find out both of them fall in love with Ho-Jun (Play by the also handsome Takeshi Kaneshiro) in High School. Well Gigi Leung win the heart of Ho-Jun who plays the guitar, talked very little and hang out in parties together. Has time past a couple of things is reveal (which i don't want to spoil you guys).

I didn't like this movie at all, i found it to be boring and very slow. The plot didn't interested me at all (probably because i'm not into romance movie). Nothing there in the movie that really grab me and let me eagerly wanting to see the next scene. The only thing i find it appealing is the ending and the screenwriter scene that analysis the current love romance. I think the stars in this movie acted wonderful and convincing on their role respectively.

I can image people liking this movie because some part of the movie (like the threesome you thought it was but instead it is reverse), but i don't like the storytelling the directing and especially the plot.
