An unexpected surprise

These days i’ve been watching a lot of Chinese movies, some are good and some are okay, but none of them was great! But this one! This was is different, this movie was AMAZING.

It really has a wonderful and a meaningful story that u can’t help but relate to, it really makes u part of the movie, as u get sad, happy, or anxious with them and only hoping success and happiness for them.

I would say that the very beginning was not as interesting, but after that u won’t even feel time as u just keep enjoying it.

I really recommend it for whoever is looking for a good laugh AND a good cry. The story is indeed very meaningful, and the acting was on point, and it is a story that just keeps getting better so don’t miss such a gem.

P.S. the movie has a credit scene which really completes the movie beautifully.
