You yi ge di fang zhi you wo men zhi dao (original title)
Director: Jinglei Xu
Writers: Shuo Wang, Yun Wang
Stars: Kris Wu, Likun Wang,
A girl travels to Prague for a study leave and to move on, and there he meets a guy who’d help her find traces of her grandmother’s past when she lived in Prague.
This movie, even though I find it a bit boring because I’ve seen movies with a similar plot so it’s quite predictable, is still good in its own right. If you like going to film festivals, this is the type of film that usually make the cut to independent film festivals. The storyline has an indie/non-mainstream feel. Good casting, great styling, a lot of quotable quotes.
Receiving a bracelet from a stranger while walking in the street, saying, “This is for love. But it doesn’t break easily. When you meet your true love, it will naturally break.” And the bracelet actually breaking moments before the happy ending, just after the guy confesses his love to the girl and asks her to stay. You’d think it wouldn’t get any more cliche or cheesier, but then a cover of Richard Marx’ “Right Here Waiting” plays while this scene unravels. I lost it. Thought I was watching a Star Cinema movie.
