Secret. The first movie directed by Jay Chow. Naturally for me of coursei won't go and watch it. However after a long and strong persuasion by my girlfriend, had no choice but to watch it, and ya..i admit i bias on this fella! No Reason! lolz! Anyway, the movie at least is better than expected. The way he acted no doubt was....not up to standard, but at least can see there are improvement compare to Initial D and Curse of the Golden Flower. The way he talks if it wasn't for the subtitle, i don't think i will understand a word coming out from his mouth.

Something that was very impressive is his piano playing skill. No question ask he's darn good at it. No fake, it's really him who's playing it. The story was not bad, a bit of time travel which some how reminds me of Sky of Love and also my big time favourite, Frequency. Also typical taiwanese long story, a lot of those taiwanese kawaii kind of slang when talking.

Well, the ending of the movie somehow is quite misleading. Jay Chow who's the only son and kid in the family at the end decided to go look for the girl and leave his dad alone. How could you do that right?? Immoral immoral! Tsk Tsk Tsk! I rather the ending to have him staying with his dad!

Girls who are fantasizing on romance story, guess you won't want to miss this movie. As i personally did not really like watching romance movie, plus the immoral ending, but points added for a good story and real piano action, so my rating for this movie is 7/10.

nowadays, all cant get away from commercial factor. He is famous singer in Asia, no doubt, publicity and reputation dominate!

@宝茹: well, true i m bias. When he first launch his album i m ok with him, in fact i like his song, but ever since the launch of his “qi li xiang” album, i began to dislike him.

I like the chorus of the song (Qi Li Xiang) very much. :) But anyway, I am not a huge fan. I just listen every now and then. 😛
