Pain shared is pain halved

When one knows one's end is coming, how would life seem but a painful wait for a seemingly inevitable truth...Then, does hope seem like a foolish comfort that entices only to disappoint or a powerful tool that inspires to do the impossible, making one reckless and irrational but also fearless and bold...

The story revolves around Wei Yi Hang, a bitter and disillusioned teen and at the time the film begins, it has been two years since he has had an operation for a brain tumor...No longer in high school, he has no friends his own age and he just sees his parents struggle financially covering for his treatment, frustrated with his helplessness he often snaps at those around him and hates the fact those in the cancer support group he goes to, try to find meaning in what he believes is a pointless existence...In one of those meetings he meets Ma Xiaoyuan a girl his age who is direct and outgoing, and is quite unfazed by cancer as a whole...she slowly and steadily makes him appreciate what he has and in the process makes him want to make the best out of his situation...

Jackson Yi is good but is saddled with a self centered adolescent role who is hardly given a chance to redeem himself...I hoped for more character development for the male lead as I failed to sympathize with his response to the people around him who went out of their way to cater to his every whim...Liu Hao Cun was extremely good, both the character she played and her acting were real and unabashed, giving this film its best moments...

The story is pretty standard and seems to have been heavily inspired by the plot of The Fault in our Stars, but pales into nothingness doing so...The shots are beautiful and the cinematography is aesthetically pleasing to the eyes and soul...The direction is a tad slow but the scenes are shot cleverly and are quite well executed...As for the screenwriting, the characters lack depth and the film leaves me wanting more...it could have been done with more brevity for the plot they had in mind...

Overall it is an enjoyable watch and does justice to showing how the people around those suffering or the ones left behind, cope with the sense of doom and come to terms with what cannot be helped...A little restrained but otherwise heart warming and emotional with a deeper take on life!

Ok so here we go.
Story. The storyline was absolutely heart-warming. It was comedic, heart touching, and heartbreaking all at once. The storyline wasn't messy and confusing. It's like a story and the main lead is telling it. Personally, I enjoyed the storyline. Although, personally, I, myself, who watches tons of movie, I was able to anticipate the ending based on the characters. SPOILERS. It's similar to The Fault in Our Stars, where terminal patients have lost the will to live until they meet an optimistic person, who brings them the will to live, but we don't find out till the end, that they are having it worse. Basically, I anticipated that the female lead would have left at the end, due to her optimism and the hope she brought. For me, the twist was easily guessed, so it did get a little boring for me at the end, but nevertheless, I loved the storyline.

Acting/Cast. Male Lead. Basically, I watched this for YYQX, and he's continued to prove himself well. He played the negativity and loss of hope of the character really well. The way he believes he going to die anyway and his one-sided perspective of his illness. I personally believed QX carried this character really well.
The female lead. I heard the actress is a new actress? I think she did pretty well, I couldn't tell, but I'm not a professional critic either. She held the character well and she portrayed it really well. Her optimism and strong-willed-ness?

Music. Well Idk, but there was no music until the end, but it's not bad. It ain't about the music. lol.

Rewatch Value. I definitely would rewatch this. This is like a family movie, there's comedy, heart-breaking moments, support, and growth. Definitely gave me a good cry. lol.

Overall. Bc, I was able to anticipate it, it isn't that high. Lol, sorry not sorry.
Honestly, this is poorly reviewed, bc it's hard to explain without telling the whole damn movie.
