HOW IT BEGAN AND ENDED:
At the beginning: Beautiful and warm...
Near halfway: Heartbreaking... (on unrequited love)
Halfway: Dark and destructive
Ending: Hopeful (That's a hint that it ended well.)
WHAT I LIKE:
The cinematography and the amazing music went well with all the scenes. I just wish Xia Mu would have more dialogues, but I understand he's a stoic and emotionless character from the start so he wouldn't speak much. Rather, read more he will progress and develop as a character through action. You'll see how much Xia Mu has grown and how he became a stronger person throughout the movie. He had gotten himself in trouble many times for Ya Wang. Even though he was impulsive, he was heroic on most events, and brought together this message and lesson to the movie:
"Love is courage, love is joy, love is sacrifice, love is not a sin. Once missed, it'll be a lifetime."
NOTE: Also please watch the movie first before you decide to dig up the real ending to the original story... You'll thank me later.
