Our Shining Days (2017): A Refreshing Chinese Musical Teen-Comedy Movie
23 October 2017 | by Rifat_SharnaSee all my reviews

If you liked Taiwanese hit teen-romance-comedy "Our Times (2015) & Japanese teen-musical film "Swing Girls (2004)" previously, this movie would be your cup of tea! Actually it's kinda blend of those two movies- if you look at our nerd heroine and then the plot about forming a traditional musical band of college students overcoming obstacles and prejudices, it will be so obvious. The plot is predictable and sometimes a bit cheesy too- you must know the outcome of clash between traditional Chinese music and western music in a Chinese movie! Yet, the movie's just refreshing- our heroine really did good job in portraying her comic and emotional character-thumbs up!And the other side characters were also well-acted, cinematography is well-done too- sometimes eye-soothing, even some animation works can be found within this movie. And about music section- you won't expect any better from college students and the scenes portraying rivalry & playing all those traditional and western instruments were done very realistically. So when you feel dull and dizzy in midst of monotonous life and cringe for some comic relief, a good-innocent teenage movie to enjoy at a stretch, just go for it! :)
