Waiting

by Rubycanary on Nov 29, 2007

Having lived in Asia, I found this to be a beautiful and sad tale about the values of love and marriage. It was very realistic and tragic. Lin Kong waits two decades to marry the woman he really loves. The time it takes to get a divorce without the wife's permission. His humble wife lives at home, dedicated to him, while she knows that he is planning for when their marriage will end. When he finally does get to marry the love of his life, he finds that the expectations are nothing like the reality.
