A student of Beijing Normal University, An Ran was a pretty typical university student. She worked hard at her studies, but she wasn’t opposed to taking a break to have a little fun, especially not when her favorite band was playing just across town. Desperate to see this once-in-a-lifetime show, An Ran fights her way through the crowd of overly excited fans mobbing the stadium, but without a ticket, she has no hope of getting in. At least not until a handsome stranger steps in and offers her a seat next to him. Without hesitation, An Ran accepts, and at that moment, her life changes forever. A Taiwanese photographer with a studio in Beijing, Qi Xiao couldn’t help but be drawn to the pretty girl he noticed trying to get into the concert. When she accepted the ticket he offered, his heart leapt, and the time they spent together that evening would stay with him forever. That was in 1991. Today, things for An Ran and Qi Xiao are very different from what they imagined they would be all those years ago. A once-famous talk show host, An Ran, now a widow, lives in California with her estranged teenage daughter, Yu Xiaonian. When An Ran’s father becomes ill, Xiaonian returns to Beijing to care for him. While there, she discovers a collection of letters and photographs that tell the story of An Ran and Qi Xiao’s love, a love that was torn apart by family obligations, government restrictions, and the cruel interference of others. When these glimpses of the past combine with Xiaonian’s own memories, she begins to see her mother in a whole new light. Will the truth of An Ran’s past be enough to heal the breach between them?

One to see

I almost started sobbing in the end really. Based on the description it's not really what you would expect, but in a pretty good way. In my opinion it is more about a daughter learning about the ups and downs of her seemingly unaffected mother who was phased by the deaths of her husband and father in law. Through this we learn what her mother meant when she said, "Goodbyes are easier with the ones dead than those alive." She had her heart broken time again by her loved one saying goodbye and had to put herself back together time and time again making her a character that you pity by the end and maybe mad at her even though you understand why she did what she did.
The casting is very great Sandra and Vicky are two talented actresses and we were able to feel everything that they felt especially in the end. One thing I thought awkward was that Qi Yitian was seemingly playing a 20-23 year old but his actor at the time was 30-31 so while watching this all I could think was that he doesn't look like he is in his early twenties.
The music really gets to you in the end and while the lyrics are a bit corny they will tear at your heart. Overall this is a movie that you should watch if you get the chance!! Maybe this won't become your favorite movie but one you can enjoy!!

Lost love and found love

Such a masterpiece.. the movie is open ended.. did they or did they not. I believe they did. Sandra Ma astonishes me in every show, she is a wonderful actor and I love how her chemistry with each and everyone of her co-stars is mind blowing, she is such an actor. The fated love, the one true love. I cried almost in every frame and I loved the open-endedness of this movie.
Beautiful, heart-breaking... such a wonderful feeling of lost love and found love.

The story transcends over 3 decades and 3 cities and 6 people. The open endedness made up for every glitch that could have been made. Such a masterpiece.
