    Comrades, Almost a Love Story

    ★★★★★

    I feel like my rational self would simply give this a 4.5 but let me tell you I swooned so hard and enjoyed this much more than I thought it would.

    The combination of Maggie Cheung at her absolute best, Leon Lai's innocent smiles, and the Teresa Teng soundtrack just made this movie something that i'll surely return to, and might even be one of my favorites of all time.

    Bumped up to a five stars.

    Greta Gerwig did THAT in an hour and thirty minutes.

    Have you ever just randomly picked up a book, knowing nothing about it, then just being pleasantly surprised throughout the experience of reading it?

    This is that, in movie form. The film created a great balance of making one feel both hope and pity for the four main characters. Layers and layers of their relationship unfolded to a largely satisfying last third of the film.

    Have you ever encountered a film that just left you in awe? floored you? a bubble of overwhelming emotions waiting to burst? 

    This is that film. Four hours never felt so short.
