It is one of the few movies I like to watched again and again. Every time, I end up balling in the end. I think it is a classic like princess buttercup. but it is deeper than that and tragic and yet quintessentially fulfilling.
This poor guy. He was not handsome. He may not be manly like his brother. But he was so sensual and brave and stubborn. It is painful to grow up. He acknowledged that. He said he thought as long as he has the true heart of love and effort, he can harvest true love. He didn't know what he was against with. it was wrong in the beginning. Wrong time, wrong place, wrong sequence. Yet love blossomed when it's no tied lingered, no sex involved. Two heart melted together and two soul joined hands. True love is like that.
I also like to watched another Chinese classic where two person loved each other because they understood each other like no one else could and they can't love each other and marry each other. I don't know what else could be more painful.
but it is good story because there is revelation. Even if one die or one fails, one also understood. One saw the true heart of another and that in itself is a confirmation and fullfillment of love. as long as you know you have another square in the eye, dead center in the heart, you are requited, you are satisfied, you had it without having it.
Beautiful actress, talented too. she is the film maker as well.
