      s r 1001 movies to see before you die. The melodrama was a bit much for me in this contrived story. It still was entertaining, but I don't plan on seeing it again. A fascinating clip was the zooming in on ears as they heard their city being destroyed. However, this was also undermined with cheap sets and bad dubbing. It was on Tubi. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Incohesive opening act set the tone for an inconsistent film. Pervasive sense of "weird" cast a shadow over every scene. Unsure how it earns the title of war film. No special performances, and visual style is nonexistent. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Patricia Intense subject matter. Beautifully acted. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/07/19 Full Review Audience Member it was so beautiful. i used alot of my tears through the movie. this movie is more then just a sad love story its a story about dreams that really come true. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member compare to what i see in Hong Kong, this is nothing special Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member It's the best! Tears just ran off my face. It's not a simply tear-jerker, but also got a really splendid story! The acting of both male and female main actors were just so good, so tender, so real.
