那些年,我们一起追的女孩

Heard so much about the hype this movie made, and I had my reservations. After all, we had seen how much success Monga and Cape No. 7 had made in Taiwan, but failed to kick up a storm in other countries as it was more relatable to the Taiwanese.

So watching it with lower expectations than what I made out to be, I was in for a treat.

The pace of the movie was reasonably good, by carefully detailing the phrases of growth by the protagonists, as well as carving out outstanding personalities in the film. The love story of Ke-Teng and Shen Jia Yi was subtle yet sweet, and it filled the movie with many touching, hilarious, warm and beautiful moments.

The director also brilliantly weaved in the brotherhood among the guys that would definitely bring back recollections of our youths on how we used to hang out with our closest buddies. Despite going on their separate ways, they still remained tight towards the end.

This movie was based on the true story of the Director, Giddens Ko, himself and it is interesting to see his memory projected on that screen.

I guess towards the very end, every girl would have hoped to have a Ke-Teng for herself, just like how I felt at the end of the movie.

Go catch it if you haven’t, definitely not a film to be missed!

Verdict: 4/5

P.S: Don’t forget the Kleenex! (:

Love, Vee
