I have been reading the original story, so naturally I am curious about this adaptation. By the third scene my heart is swimming in tears.
What an amazing actress Miss Lin is, to be able to wrench such emotions from the audience. A truly stunning performance. Visually the film is a feast most astonishing, bringing an ancient Chinese style of illustration into a livid life form. The scene where Jia Baoyu visits the memorial to his true counterpart had the most sublime impact which I cannot describe. Small wonder that I read that this is Miss Lin's favourite film. Whilst the depth and nature of the other major characters was not fully explored, the cinematographic depiction of the reality of the world inhabited by Jia Baoyu and his true counterpart provided a most interesting and soul satisfying focus for any students of the original work. The capture of this essence by the director is a supreme achievement.
Pao-yu is in love with his cousin, Lin Tai-yu, but his family has other marital plans for him that will leave both broken-hearted.
