It's been a huge roller-coaster ride with this movie. It's hard to say why you should watch it at first. It started off slow, giving us a preview of the main leads' school days. Then it jumped right to the breaking up and the contract. But once they started getting along with the real story, I just couldn't stop. Right now, I just finished the movie and still feel like an emotional read more wreck. If you're a romantic, don't pass this movie up!

STORY: The story line would have been perfect if it didn't get so obvious after a while. Girl and boy start dating during school years and then break up at the girl's request to pursue successful careers (guy becomes a chef and the woman is some kind of designer / pottery maker). She comes up excuses as to why she wants to break up with him. Five years later, they contact each other again only to find that Li Xing is getting married! From this point, Qiao Qiao and Li Xing go through a series of events that tests their love and whether or not they can still go through with the break up contract. It doesn't get obvious until towards the end, but by that point, I can guarantee that you don't want to stop watching. I only gave it a 9 because the screenwriters wrote a cliche twist but they developed it so that it's not like most cliches. In a way, the cliche was made up by the ending. I just wish they had a better way of explaining the breakup. There were a lot of surprises in this movie.

ACTING/CAST: I really loved Qiao Qiao's acting and Mo Mo! He was so cute and I was so surprised at what his role was in this movie. Well, less competition! Eddie Peng broke my heart throughout the movie. He was the innocent one, the one hidden in the dark. It hurt when he tried to keep a straight face on. When he cried, I cried. When Qiao Qiao teared up, I cried. There were so many tears in this movie and none of them seemed fake. Gotta respect these crying scenes. Qiao Qiao changed her roles so easily. From shocked/surprised, to anger, to calmness. As an actress, she played her character really well and it was nice to see the diverse personalities that she put on. Of course you can see this happening with Eddie Peng as well. Definitely great actors/actresses in this movie.

MUSIC: Loved the background music! Fit with the mood and flowed with the events.

REWATCH VALUE: Definitely re-watching in the near future. It's something you would watch when you want something uplifting. It's uplifting in the sense of how romantic it is and keeps you hopeful for something like this to happen in your life. It's something you can watch when you're bored.

Story: A classic storyline that starts off with a frown, then a smile, then sadness and ending with a sigh. For all of you romantics out there, this is a movie to watch. My only warning is:- keep a box of tissue next to you. You'll need it -guaranteed!

Acting/Cast: Full marks for acting. All veteran actors and actresses; so you can expect mature and professional acting.

Music: Sombre, sweet but most read more times, reminiscence of love won and lost. The music reflects nicely the feel of this movie.

Rewatch value: Personally, I am the sort of romatic who would go for comedy romance as I love to de-stress while watching a movie or drama. This movie is a wonderful movie; the re-watch value simply reflects my personal preference for only re-watching something that is light and sweet that helps me to relax. This movie makes me cry out like a baby; so I won't be re-watching it anytime soon. However, for those of you who loves tragic romance type of movie, this one here is a winner for you!

Overall: A good movie. Certainly worth the recommendation. However, I would include my recommendation with a warning for keeping a box of tissue next to you before you hit the play button. Trust me - you'll need it!

    I've read a lot of shoujo mangas, romance books, watched a lot of romantic asian dramas and movies, so for me this movie was very predictable... but nevertheless I loved it to bits! There was something so fresh about this movie, I don't know. The actors were great, and I loved how the movie was straight to the point. I'm just disappointed that the ending had to be so predictable and unoriginal. But anyways, FAVED <3

    Here is my heart~ You can just crush it, stab it, throw it away, step on it, destroy it and keep it since I can't feel it anyway after watching this movie... I cant feel my eyes or nose but it was so...beautiful.. (yeah the correct word for it is beautifully sad) T_T T_T I need to watch something to escape from this feeling but I dont think I will be able to watch anything soon~

    my reaction after watching: "damn boring!!! what the hell was it? " and this kind of plot is so overrated and banal... acting was terrible , nothing new and bla bla .... maybe for someone who just starts to watch Asian movies and dramas it was "wow" but for me it was just boring ... and I come here on mydramalist and rates are : 10 , 9 ,8 ... whaaaat?
    O_o only 4 point from me ...

    Here are some things I think will work for all y'all who want to watch this awesome movie.
    For these you need to download something:

    And that's pretty much all I found! You can always learn Chinese then watch it. After maybe 5 years it would work.
