This Taiwanese film, as the title suggests, is the concluding episode of the popular TV drama series that aired in Singapore last year. Admittedly, I did not catch a single episode of the TV series, but the introductory scene sets the record straight on the complex relationships surrounding the main character Xie An Zhen (Sonia Sui).
The plot revolves around An Zhen having to make a decision on her future man after four years of being a single mother since her divorce. Will it be her cheating ex-husband Wen Rui Fan (James Wen) or her admirer Lan Tian Wei (Chris Wang)?
A simple, straightforward plot requires strong actors to carry it, more so on the big screen. Unfortunately, only Sonia Sui proves that she is more than a pretty face. While she connects with viewers through varied emotions, the same cannot be said for the gentlemen. Both Chris Wang and James Wen feel largely one-dimensional and fail to complement the female lead. Is it no wonder that she faces a dilemma over whom to choose?
While humorous at the beginning, the novelty soon wears out. The supporting casts who took sides as to which men An Zhen should choose were funny at the beginning, but their repetitive over-the-top antics soon become tiring. It might work well on the small screen but definitely fails to sustain audience interest here.
Although followers of the TV drama series are looking for a conclusion, it probably is best left hanging. This movie merely serves to satisfy humans' need for an ending but life is not always like that.
