So Young, so what?...
9 June 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

As a huge fan of the Asian cinema, then of course I jumped at the chance to sit down and watch "So Young" (aka "Zhi wo men zhong jiang shi qu de qing chun") when I got the chance to do so.

The movie is very, very slow paced. And that made it quite an ordeal to actually sit through it.

This is a movie that really doesn't have much of any appeal of any kind. And it had a rather pointless story to be bluntly honest.

"So Young" had a rather good cast, and they all put on some very good acting performances. The characters in the movie were ones that you didn't really care about. Especially the Zheng Wei character was unfathomably annoying and just frustrating to the point of ruining the movie.

I gave up after sitting through one hour of this ordeal of a movie. I just couldn't take it anymore.
