Jane March plays a French teenager sent to a Saigon boarding school, while Tony Leung is a 32-year Chinese aristocrat. They look at each and they both see a blinding white flash; it's kismet.

Lovely & Poignant

by Intensity on Jul 9, 2009

This is a great film, with compelling cinematography, focused acting performances free of exaggeration, and a recalled story (with matching musical scoring) that touches our core sense of romance without oversimplification. The final "character" is a closing Chopin Waltz that reflects the sentiment of all that has preceded it.
