As a child, Man Cho was rendered mute as a result of the cruel actions of his mother and was adopted by the kind-hearted Chu Sa Kiu. Man Cho grew up with Sa Kiu's daughter Kwan Ho, and the two eventually develop romantic feelings for one another.
Man Cho is extremely self-sacrificing, has an inferiority complex due to his disability, and therefore feels unworthy of Kwan Ho. Sa Kiu is also against their relationship and things are further complicated when Si To Lai Sun enters the picture after falling for Kwan Ho, too. Add Synopsis In Portuguese

BRILLIANT movie - although a happy(ish) ending still go in armed with tissues as you WILL cry. Cheung Julian as 'Man Cho' was just heart-breakingly sweet. Seriously, the character will rot your teeth - he is the kind of man we all want to end up with and, if like me you have a daughter, we want them to marry. Because love with him is easy - he gives his whole heart and expects nothing in return. Loving him would a cake walk; and so you're rooting for him with whoever he chooses, the first ten minutes into the film. Then you're rooting for HIM the rest of it - you do wonder at the sick humour of Fate, not only for him but the woman he worships, but you cast aside all doubts and you continue to physically WILL the happy ending to happen. You tell your laptop as the tears run down your face that this is one time ANY other ending is NOT acceptable.

Okay, so that covered, let me go through the list above to explain my marks -

it's really good. No, seriously, it is. The actions taken by a certain girl, although horrible, are kind of understandable. Love makes us do horrible things; but eventually good people take the right path. The main couple are adorable; both hurt, both scarred, both fighting to make their own way in the world and ultimately relying on each other. So when Fate plays the dirty trick it does your first reaction is to yell "oh come ON!! REALLY?!!" at your screen. I think the ending IS happy - I think it's also utterly believable. For that I'm thankful on too many levels to count. 10/10

what can I say? ALL of them were BRILLIANT - really - there was NOT a bad actor amongst them. I think that's what made it SO watchable. Obviously Cheung Julian as 'Man Cho' and She Charmaine as 'Chuk Kwan Ho' were the best, but also Chen Jo as 'Ki Ki' (so sad too) and Sit Nancy as 'Chu Sai Kui' were epic too; but so was all the cast - the shady cousin (who wasn't all bad), the other taxi driver who looked and acted tough and smoked like a chimney, but she actually was kind too. ALL had their roles down. But in the name of full disclosure I will admit that Cheung Julian held my attention the most - he hurt my heart through movie and then broke it with that final scene. 10/10

Music was okay - nothing to write home about, but fine. It fit the movie and, though none of it was memorable, it was good. 8/10

Rewatch Value:
Well that's obvious as I've already watched this movie SIX times and counting. It's just such a warm and wonderful movie - even given the sadder moments. so an obvious 10/10

Again this is kind of obvious - given that I adore the whole movie, the cast AND I've rewatched it a LOT it would be weird NOT to give it the best marks possible. so 10/10
