Love it, love it, love it!!! How I love this movie! Joan Lin didn't speak one word in this movie, but her acting as a mute young woman is enough to capture my heart. Kenny Bee, with his crew cut hair, looked like the boy next door, he complemented to Joan Lin's acting very well, they made a lovely screen couple. That little boy was absolutely fantastic, he was so natural, so adorable!!
Ge Xiang Ting, like always, was a brilliant actor. This story was made in a small city in Taiwan, the story showed the daily lives of simple folks like them, it made the whole story very credible and the audience could feel that they were a part of it.

Thanks for posting this one, it's one of my favorite Taiwan movies with Joan Lin and Kenny Bee. Like Diane, I love the realism of the villagers' lives in this small town, everyone dressed and lived very simply, a very touching story. Although people live very simply in this story, they care about one another a lot. Also, the lovely music by Teresa Teng is great, makes this one a classic.
