New movie refreshes memory of young Chinese generation
To many Chinese in their 20s or 30s, blockbuster Eternal Moment, which aired on Saturday (two days before Valentine’ s Day), is far more than just a movie. Rather, as the sequel to a hit TV show from 12 years ago, it is a renewal of the teenage memory of viewers.
The theme song once again resonated in the streets. “At the corner where we met, people still come and go…mourning for our adolescence…” the song goes.
“In this movie, we tried to show to our audiences some possibilities of what could happen to a pair of young lovers after 12 years,” said Zhang Yibai, director of the movie during an exclusive interview with Xinhua.
