Tempting hearts / Sam dung (China, 1999)

Tempting hearts is directed by Sylvia Chang and stars Takeshi Kaneshiro and Gigi Leung.

It's a nice and simple lovestory between Sheo-Rou (Gigi Leung) and Ho-Jun (Kaneshiro) for three decades. A story about a love that never can be, and how this love will chase you for the rest of your life.

When the parents of the girl forbid her to see her boyfriend the film came a bit too close to my own life, it really hurts when you yourself had a love which just isn't meant to be. Ot ro be said more tragic but so real: It's the love we've lost that haunts us.
I guess some people would say this movie is a bit boring (I have to say, some scenes could have been left out...they really slowed this movie down) but when you have been in love before yourself it's definitely worth watching. The ending is just very very good, you will remember it forever.
