Addictive and Unforgettable. Can only wish it never ends.
28 July 2012 | by tanyeeyeeSee all my reviews

I am deeply touched by this movie, the last time i had similar feeling was after watching Maggie Cheung and Leon Lai, Comrades Almost a Love Story.

A West Lake Moment has a remarkable lingering effect, i keep on watching until i lost count. Sometimes the whole movie and other time just to remember. It reminds of youth, u-turns, nice surprises, improbable events that you dare not even to dream but really happened and the addictive feeling of adrenaline rush to have butterflies in your belly.

All in all, as close as to be dreaming. I envy for people who are lucky to have had similar experiences even for Zhou Xun and Chen Kun despite they were merely playing/acting the roles of these lucky people.

Really appreciate the production/casting people for making the effort to recruit chen kun and zhou xun to be part of this movie. They really share a genuinely precious chemistry together that will set the bar really high for others.

A truly must see. I can only regret watching it too late but beware as you will be longing for more...butterflies.
