Too much on my mind. Too few words.
So, you shall have to suffice with these two dumb videos I decided to make on a pitiful Friday night at home:
P.S. I always wanted to blog about this movie (You Are The Apple Of My Eye / 那些年，我們一起追的女孩) but grew reluctant when I saw how much has already been said and written about it. Yeah, I'm weird that way.
I'll come clean here though.
I actually watched it FOUR times in the cinema (twice by myself).
I was at one point VERY fascinated with Michelle Chen, the movie's lead actress. I am especially interested in how she studied in the US, came back to Taiwan, decided to become an actress at a rather late age and suddenly shot to stardom.
I am also fascinated with Giddens Ko, the director and author of the autobiographical book it's based on. Inspired by his courage, honesty and ability to tell an age-old tale in a refreshing way.
All in all, it's the story I wish I wrote. In case you haven't noticed, I've always been a great fan of school-themed and romance stories. Okay, so I suck at writing romance stories. But still.
of my favourite scenes in the movie, when the gang all graduate from
high school and go their separate ways. Naively and adorably he tells
her to not to fall for other guys in university.|
That was so 2003 for me!
