Recounting his experiences to a wedding photographer, he recounts the bad, the good and how the support of those around him -- and that one true love -- allowed him to endure. He realizes the heartache felt in breaking up with her has made him the man he is today, for better or worse, and he looks toward the future to try and change who he is. ~~ Based on the best selling novel series by Jiu Ye Hui (later adapted into a popular web series).
Cast & Credits
The acting was great, nothing cringy and both actors played their part so well. Just that thinking about it, I cant really see their in love, yes you know they love each other but maybe, I believe its on Eddie Peng's side. The movie was shot pretty well, It was one of the reasons why I came to like the movie though I feel like it was quite lengthy but it kept me wanting for more and the ending left me hanging.
Of all the movies I mentioned in my comment, this movie has made some tears fall. I don't know but it felt real, those moments of them in the classroom, their friendship and the things that happened throughout the movie. It made me miss high school days, my friends, old friends, and wanting some reunion with them, them memories. That one thing is the strength of this movie, it captured what it meant to fall in love for the first time :)
