Somewhere Only We Know

So, WOW, I just watched this movie and it was by far the most fantastic romantic movie I ever saw. I don’t know if it can get any better then two stories that transcend time about the importance of grasping love.

This Chinese movie is about a woman, Jin Tian, who travels to Prague after she loses two people she cares about deeply to find herself. Jin TianĀ meets a young man who enraptures her, but, like herself, has a sad past. One of the people she lost was her Grandmother, who lived in Prague during World War II (the other her fiancee who left her at the alter). Not too long after getting to Prague Jin Tian finds out that her Grandmother had a loverĀ during her stay there, thus commences amazing flashbacks into the past.

Honestly, I’m not one for romances. I usually find them to be corny, repetitive and overtly dramatic, but this movie really stood out. It was heartfelt and real. Quite frankly, I even cried. It’s amazing that I would have so much to say about a movie, but this was really spot-on for me. The acting, the visuals, the story were just so well-done.
