This is definitely a movie that is worthy watching! It is about the struggle of a woman in a competitive environment to meet her goals, to pay off her dad’s debts and to find her ‘Prince Charming’ over a period from 1997 to 2007. Despite the intriguing romance, it is amazing to see some major events such as the Hong Kong financial crash and Sars fever being briefly mentioned. I do enjoy this movie !

Lawrence,

Thanks for posting this one, so refreshing to finally see a movie that is somewhat realistic in portraying a romance about a couple who have working class jobs! The background of this movie also including historic events of Hong Kong sounds wonderful too, thanks much for your recommendations!
