Audience Reviews for So Young (Zhi wo men zhong jiang shi qu de qing chun)

I am really sad that most of the Westerners will never have a chance to see some of the Chinese movies like this one... So Young (simplified Chinese: 致我们终将逝去的青春) is a Chinese drama directed by the gorgeous Zhao Wei and it is based on the best-selling novel To Our Youth that is Fading Away by Xin Yiwu. The film is Zhao's directorial debut, and she showed us some exceptional talent and maturity. She is already the most famous actress and pop-singer in China and now showed us that she can be a successful director with ease. In addition to the novel, the film was also based in part by Zhao's own personal college experience in the 1990s.

Everything about this movie was done "by the book" but with style which is very poetic, nostalgic and smooth like the finest silk! No wonder this movie has become a major success at the Chinese box office, grossing over 700 million yuan (US$115 million). Xin Yiwu, author of the novel, has mentioned that Zhao Wei was actually her choice to play the lead character of "Zheng Wei". However, Zhao declined the offer, and opted to direct the film choosing to cast newcomers with the exception of Mark Chao and Han Geng. And some of those newcomers were such talents that I believe that soon we will all know the name of Yang Zishan, who played the lead female character Zheng Wei. Zhao stated, "They're very green and new. Sometimes they even lack common sense. But I like working with them because they're down-to-earth...What they lack in experience, they replace with enthusiasm." And the enthusiasm was catching the audience through the events of love, disappointment and hope.

The first hour and a half could be the best Chinese youth movie but the last part was a little bit rushed and fabricated for a final closing of the story... still, it is an amazing work of art with outstanding story, cast and directorship! Do not miss this one...
