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 againsttheir relationship and things are further complicated when Si To Lai Sun enters the picture after falling for Kwan Ho, too.
Cast & Credits
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
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
