Why do I like this movie?
- I am quite okay with Andy Lau (sometimes good performances, sometimes lousy), and Karen Mok is a very interesting actress
- I like the way Kong Zhai (Andy Lau) grow up from a rebellious kid to be an adult and manage to have a adult conversation with his father, understand his father and realise his own mistake and regretting it (he learns appreciation and found happiness, though not much time is left for him).
- The love scene between Kong Zhai and Miss Lee is very interesting and funny, for at least it is not too stereotype. If only real life courtship could be so simple and happy, without all the artificial barriers we created for ourselves.
- I like the last scene where the old Kong Zhai ask his girlfriend, "Are you still going to wait for your boyfriend if he is not coming?” The girl answered, "I'll. Because I have time". Perhaps there is no deadline and no urgency, thus everyone takes their own sweet time before saying "I Love U" to your loves one. Sometimes, we might not even say it for our entire life.
The movie did manage to squeeze a tiny bit of tears out from me, and it is a good reminder of things we always neglected and bring different perspectives to us. A good movie with eccentric music always manages to touch our heart, at least for the moment.
Go watch it and remind yourself of appreciation.
