My thoughts 我的感言:
Big applause to Jay Chou and team! It turns out, surprisingly an excellent movie! The lighting, art directions, dialouge, story details, casting, cinematography and the soundtrack are perfectly crafted!

The story started of as a high school love story of a boy and a girl, it was really sweet. Then there's a sudden unexpected dark twist in the story, that leads to an interesting ending.

There were several memorable scenes, which showed off Jay's talent. One of the most impressive, was the "piano battle" scene, where Jay and a senior (acted by his buddy friend - 宇豪 (南拳媽媽團員)) were challening each other, playing on one of Chopin's music piece. That scene had intense fingers tapping on the keyboards, felt hammers hammering the strings... a total extreme climax scene.


Personally, I think Jay Chou didn't look too well in Curse of the Golden Flower and Initial D. However, I have a different thoughts when I saw his MV from his 7th album - Still Fantasy 依然范特西, which he directed and acted in it. It was SUPERB!!! The details were so defined and expectations were high from him.

Slowly, he "reviewed" his talent through time. KEEP UP, "HOO~HOO~HAH~HEE!!!"

Can't wait to get my hands on the soundtrack.
