Well, the description for this says it all so I won't repeat it.

STORY: This story isn't about BL, really. It's about broken families of two boys who became friends but moved away and met again later in life and rediscover their feelings towards each other. This story is so great but you probably will not like the ending. It made me sad for quite a while. While it is not a tragic in the sense of someone dying, but a realistic choice that one of the guys had to make, to put his family before himself. That's life.

ACTING/CAST: The boys were young and the older versions still young, but I felt they did a good job. They are cute together.

MUSIC: Since one is a musician, this show had some real good songs. The love song Mew sings was translated (yay!) and the lyrics melt the heart.

REWATCH VALUE: I could not watch this a second time without having a friend with me.

OVERALL: This movie has many warm and fuzzy spots as well as some soul-crushing sad spots, but I believe it was worth the ride. Don't pass this one up because of the ending. You would be missing out on a good story.

TL;DR: A great story about love, loss, family, love rediscovered, and love sacrificed. Worth the trip. Bring tissue for the tears.

To be honest I only watched it recently even if it was shown last 2007. I do watch BL series and movies but I did not find the movie interesting at first because of Mario Maurer, not because I don't like him but because he is quite famous for his CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE movie and I totally ship him with Bifern so I find it odd to watch it. But because I love BL genre so eventually I decided to watch it and I did not regret doing so. The movie does not really revolves in Mew and Tongs love it is actually more on their family. Every action or decision children takes it always affect the parents same goes with the decisions or actions parents did affect their children. The movie also tackles about friendship. The movie also show that love has no gender its just that its really difficult for both male that love each other to overcome the culture and the judgement of some people specially if it comes from your own parents. it also show that love is understanding,giving and its also possible to love someone without becoming their girl or boyfriend.
