Well this one was created for Pusan International film festival Malay/Korea a film by Woo Ming Jin

I like this kinda movies. There are many movies from all over the world that showing simple ordinary life in their community and this one to. A Romantic drama, the story goes really slowly ,with not many dialog. Emotional movie which doesn't have any nudity. This is really simple film there's nothing to shock you personally i love this kinda films. This boy Ah Fei living basically on his own, coz his father Ah Kau being sick and soon he will not by able to work. Ah Fei saves one womens life and her family give him a job. He meets saved womens daughter which seems to by in love with him. But he have crush on other girl. And then the Ah kau keep going to his old times lover, women that he never married.
