Storyline

Based on the mid-eighteenth century novel by Cao Xueqin, and taken from editors Cheng Weiyuan and Gao E's adaptation of the novel, this TV-series is a remake of the 1987 version by CCTV. It is a story about the love between fun-loving and carefree Jia Baoyu and sensitive and ill health-prone Lin Daiyu. It is also about the feudal ruling class system through the prosperity and decline of the four notable families of Jia, Xue, Wang and Hsueh. To prepare for the visit of Baoyu's sister, Imperial Consort Jia Yuanchun, Grand View Garden was installed in the family compound. Baoyu and his siblings and cousins later attend school and spend quality time there; much of the series' course of events take place in the Garden. Written by Oliver Chu

Not even close.
9 August 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is Beijing's 2010 TV- series adaptation of the classic 1700s novel, about the tragic love of Bao Yu and Tai Yu. The story also focuses on the rise and decline of the four notable families and the revolts of the many servants and nurses in Grand View Garden.

My mom and I saw several episodes of this series and she said that it follows the novel more closely than the beloved 1987 TV series. However, the overall execution of this version pales in comparison with its 1987 counterpart. The costumes were less vibrant and colorful and the characters' make-up and hairstyles look like Chinese opera troupe members. The music sounded like generic canned soundtrack and doesn't come close with the majestic and elegant songs of the 1987 version. And, the cinematography just appeared washed out and too dreamy, not very realistic.

So, overall, not a very successful adaptation of the novel, in my opinion.

Grade D-
