A strange phenomenon generates a romantic relationship between a beautiful law student and an unattractive geek.
The campus geek rescues the prettiest campus girl from a dried lake after it falls in.
The film revolves around the premise that if two people meet in the chrysanthemum lake when the lake dries, they are bound to fall in love and stay together forever. The legend is put to the test.
Cast & Credits
However, I can't help but feel like this film was directed and/or written by somebody who does not understand &quot; geeks &quot;. I say this in quotation marks because that's just a negative word for the people who are over zealous in their own hobbies; video games, engineering, art, computers, science,history,etc/ Most of these are actual professions. In this movie, these people are portrayed to be creepy socially inept emotionally weak people who are the vermin of society. Not only this but the male lead is the prime example. Why? Clearly in the real world this is not the case at all
The " twist "at the end was not a good idea and I want to kill the person who thought it was. It's like they took a page straight out of M. Night Shamalyan's films. Forcing a twist at the end of a film just for the sake of having one. Except in this case, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Read further below if you want to find out exactly what I mean
So in the movie there's this legend that if two people fall in a lake while it is dried up, they will become happily ever after. So the two leads fall in and you see how they end up together throughout the 90 minute movie. However, it turns out at the end you discover that it was all a hoax by the male lead. He manufactures the legend, the draining of the lake, the fake happily ever after stories from the legend, as well as a number of things just so he can get together with the campus beauty. After finding out about this, she breaks up with him. And what does he do? Almost kills himself. Fade out to 7 years later and they're married and together. The End.
What. The. Fuck? If it weren't for that stupid ending, I would have thoroughly enjoyed this film but as of now, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. IM going to washing it down with another episodes of Game of Thrones.
I went into this movie expecting your typical generic romcom film....and for the most part that is what it was. But it also had some unexpected elements that made me give it a higher score than i normally would have.
Story 8/10: The main reason why I gave it such a high score was because of the unexpected elements in the film.
Acting 10/10: No major issues with the acting.
Music: 6/10: The music fit the scene but none of it was remarkable.
Rewatchability 4/10: I generally do not rewatch movies or dramas unless they're extremely great. This one was for the most part simply average.
Overall 7.5/10: This is a good movie for a boring Sunday where you have nothing better to do and you've already seen the other top films or dramas of the genre.
