A surprisingly well made film
3 July 2012 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about a woman working in a wedding planning agency. She handles her break up while dealing with clients looking for a dream wedding.

"Love Is Not Blind" is surprisingly well made. From make up, costumes, set designs, cinematography, the quality across the board is very good. In the vein of "500 Days Of Summer", "Love Is Not Blind" is fun, fluffy and a little quirky. I particularly like the set designs. Every scene looks as if it was lifted out from an modern interior design magazine. Even the way a dinner table is set is so stylish. Together with the portrayal of the dream wedding of ultra rich clients, this film reflects the rapidly changing society in mainland China.

It is a simple story but it touches the heartstrings. I like the way the leading girl is untainted by the materialism and extravagance. Her male colleague is funny, and the campness is so well portrayed but not over the top. Another impressive thing is that there are a number of really deep one liners that is thought provoking, such as whether love is a luxury and Louis Vuitton is a necessity.

I really enjoyed "Love Is Not Blind", and I look forward to China making more films of this calibre.
