Love exists in every age
19 July 2014 | by liu_chenguangSee all my reviews

I would say the royalty in China is alway considered very important especially for a woman in the past. In that age the Outbreak described, people deprived their emotions to others even their lovers for their safety. When Yanshi came back home and found the reality his wife Wanyu Feng had no memory to him, he was not desperate. He tried all kinds of methods to help Wanyu recover until he accepted the fact Wanyu couldn't recover forever. He always felt happy only if he stayed with his wife. In their eyes, I had no feeling about hatred but cherishing. I extremely appreciate the Wanyu's insistence for her husband Yanshi. I think this film shows the Chinese woman's attitude to love.
