It tells you the history at least.
22 June 2007 | by jueyinwangSee all my reviews

The love story may seem unbelievable nowadays, but remember it happened 60 years ago. You can't judge it with your own experience. But one thing for sure is that it tells you some history which is real. THe other thing is that there were/are people out there somewhere who are stubborn/faithful enough in terms of love: they found their true love, they lost it because of some historical problem (not because of themselves), but they still have hope and faith in their love and they never seize to look for it: one love in one life time. Remember it happened long time ago in a place that traditional thoughts dominated. We need to appreciate history. If there were no war, then the separation wouldn't be a separation of a life time and it wouldn't be such a tragedy.
