YesAsia Editorial Description

Missed opportunity and cruel fate meet in Eighteen Springs, director Ann Hui's rich melodrama set in 1930s Shanghai. Based on an Eileen Chang novel, the film tells the tale of a mismatched romance between factory worker Manjing (Jacklyn Wu) and wealthy merchant Shijun (Leon Lai). The two meet and fall in love innocently, but their differing classes create unseen problems. Manjing's sister Manlu (Anita Mui) is a club hostess, and Shijun's parents aren't comfortable with a Shijun marrying someone with a dubious family. Even worse, Manlu's husband (Ge You) may have other plans for Manjing.

Director Ann Hui weaves a compelling tale of unfortunate circumstance and muted desire, and her actors turn in superb, complex performances. Jacklyn Wu delivers an award-winning performance as the compassionate and conflicted Manjing, a woman who struggles against fate, and refuses to be swept away by its indifference. Anita Mui garnered a Best Supporting Actress Award at the 17th Annual Hong Kong Film Awards for her impressive turn as Manlu. An emotionally mature and sublimely realized film, Eighteen Springs ranks among Ann Hui's best works.

Not bad Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
This film is not actually that bad considering it is made in China. My only comment is that the rape scene is a little too disturbing for me to handle.

Boring movie but I still love Leon a lot. I felt bad in the movie when Leon and Jacqueline didn't get each other. Anyways, Leon is still my favorite chinese singer/actor in Hong Kong though.
