This is an inspiring and touching romance. It relates the joy and sorrow of 'true love'. The cast's performances are impressive and Derek Yee's direction is amazing. That explains why this movie could easily take away many awards in the film festival.

What a nice movie title! Another good reason for me to buy this dvd. I would like to watch this great movie and empathize with the people in this romance.

Lawrence and Priscilla,

I'm curious about this movie, I have heard about it before but didn't realize it has the same title as the remake of "Love Without End" by SB with Jenny Hu and Ling Yun. Does this movie have the same plot as the other two versions of "Love Without End", if so how does this one compare to the other two?

Thanks,
Joyce
