      Fragile hearts are not fragile

      What is true love?

      Is this an answerable question? Someone asked me today, why do you like him? I said, you asked a silly question, can you explain why you prefer radishes to potatoes? If I use descriptive words to state who I like, I can do it. Encountering professors in biology and other sciences in college, they can tell that there is some change in the brain rather than the heart that causes you to feel love, but for love, they can only vaguely say that it is wonderful...

      if he were a christmas tree

      Charlene is a girl with messy hair and unisex clothes, and ex bf is a gloomy addict. She didn't believe that she could meet love, and kept wondering if she lacked the ability to love.

      I have been a matchmaker for my same table since elementary school, and I began to play the role of my best friend's "love consultant" in junior high school. During college, I witnessed many romances that blossomed and failed... I am familiar with most of the intractable love diseases, and have...

      love like origami

      The central idea of ​​this film is very simple, two words: Love

      Why are we always discussing/thinking/looking for love? I think, in large part because love is the most unusual part of ordinary people's lives. You don't need to land on the moon, you don't need to ride the battlefield, you don't need to do great things, you don't need to travel the world - just two people, even the most ordinary two people, can reap great joy and satisfaction. Its low cost and high returns make it...

      Knocked down movie dialogue.

      You don't know what love is?


      Oh, well, that's a shame.

      "Don't you know what love is?"

      "I don't know."

      "Oh, that's a shame."

      Are you looking for love?

      No, not really. I'm kind of content.

      There's tons of guys out here. If you go out here, you can find your soulmate.

      "Are you looking for love?"

      "No, I'm happy by myself. "...

      Love is but one of life's most beautiful lies

             Before watching this movie, I knew it wouldn't be amazing. But I still watched it. And look carefully. Just like countless times of love, I know it's just a dream or an illusion, but I'm still addicted to it, and I can't extricate myself. Just like I know that life is meaningless, but I still exist in a high-sounding manner, running ups and downs in the world.

          Such self-deception is a shame and a redemption.

          Just like the movie itself, in a very...

      Questionnaire about love. All the efforts of the crew are still not enough to make me believe in love. Everyone interviewed is prepared, and preparation is whitewashing. I would rather believe that sentence: do not lie about...

      "True love is a completely different thing. It only appears occasionally, once in a lifetime." The freshest love movie I saw in 2009, comparable to "500 Days with Summer". The effect of the fake documentary also makes it difficult to distinguish the true and false love in the film, and the perspective is refreshing and very attractive. "You have a memory you both have and it's worth fighting for and working hard for. That person is irreplaceable,...

    Movie plot

     Charlyne Yi is a girl who doesn't believe in love. At the beginning, she said so herself. Or, at least, she doesn't believe in the "Prince Who Frog" and "Cinderella" romances that take place in mainstream Hollywood movies. Her life experiences have made her a type of person who has no illusions about love, but she's not a stone girl - which makes things tricky. The film began like this. Under the arrangement of Nick, Charlyne Yi's...

    Creative background

    "Mashup Comedy"
    At the sundance film festival in 2009, the film became a topic of conversation, not only because such a warm and pleasant independent film stood out at the sundance film festival marked by sex, blood and violence, but more because Because such a novel film mixed with documentaries and feature films can make people more resonate with "real and fantasy". But how did this "mix and match" of documentary and feature films...

    It's a mash-up of documentaries, romances, and comedies. It looks very innovative, and it is the most eye-catching work at the 2009 sundance film festival. - "Rolling Stone" magazine
