Entertaining movie fare
15 February 2002 | by flipfan84See all my reviews

Para Para Sakura was a rather surprising movie for me. Entertaining and light, it mixes a good blend of drama and comedy. The dancing scenes are quite good and as always, the beautiful Cecilia Cheung shines. Aaron Kwok delivers a good performance as well and is probably one of his most emotionally diverse roles he has ever done. Very good though the ending seemed a little off to me, definitely worth a watch.
