Autumn's Concerto (2009) is the perfect expression of what true love is and how it should be portrayed. Yes, comedies and romances are both good, and fun and exciting at the time, but this kind of love... maybe acting, but my goal is to have that kind of love, because because even I know such love. does exist, even if it doesn't.
This movie really hit everything for me. I'm going to try to keep my inner fangirl untouched, logical and realistic without giving away spoilers or anything, but it really has it all. There's a lot of plot twists in this story, and a lot of it doesn't sound like the original, but... they still work. I mean, come on, rich boys, poor girls famous, cancer, dementia, pregnancy... that's just the beginning. Like everything you've ever seen in a TV series is included in this one, and it WORKS. I know, I can't believe it. I cried so many times while watching this movie, it was definitely a tear. It's a beautiful story, one that will break your heart and you won't be able to stop thinking about it.
The acting is phenomenal, I think it's very underrated. Vaness Wu received a lot of harsh criticism for her 'over-acting' but I don't think there are that many. I really like his 'acting'. When he cried... oh. mine. God. I really believed that. He really looks like he's crying, and it really looks painful. I don't know how to say it... he looks like a man who will cry. As for Addy An, she received a lot of harsh criticism for her poor acting. I agree that she looks emotionless at times, but I think it has more to do with the script. Not only that, but I wouldn't say she acted. I could see it in her eyes, in her reaction, in everything she said. Her subtle demeanor and expression, that's what defines her personality. You need to pay attention to those things, her personality is not always so blatantly affected. Mu Cheng gets all my respect, even if she's fictional. For me, the acting is amazing, and let's not forget the little girl Xiao Le. God that kid grows up to be a superstar. His acting is absolutely perfect, especially for a child. He really pulls the story together throughout the second half. Some go as far as to say that the story just gets him together until the end, but I wouldn't go that far. With or without him, I'll keep watching, but he's a cute little guy. One day he will get so tired during filming that his father will have to stay on site. What a strong boy.
The romance and chemistry between Mu Cheng and Guan Xi is tangible. I can almost taste it, I can feel it. It's so beautiful, it touches my heart. I know this sounds cheesy and cliché, but really, you won't find pure love in a drama more than this. If I didn't know any better, I would assume that Vanes Wu and Addy An are in love. Chemistry just out of this world. In the end love really wins, that's what this movie taught me. I must say I learned a lot from it.
Also, the people you hate in this show you will gradually come to love. Along with the development of the main characters' personalities, the supporting characters also really develop. The side episodes in this show are just as interesting, and I find myself getting into them just as much as when I was the main couple/family.
The ending of this movie is my favorite. Not just the end for MC and GX but for everyone. The ending of this movie is also one of the reasons why this movie is number 1 for me. There is closure, above everything. No loose plot endings, all subplots tied, no questions asked, at least not for me. Everything is happy, I am really satisfied at the end. No worries, no complaints, just sadness that it's over. Bitter-sweet.
I won't lie and say that this is an easy movie to watch. There will be a lot of painful moments and heart-pounding scenes, but the good in the drama makes it to the top. Even if you hate someone you don't think you'll hate, you still understand what's going on and why they're doing what they're doing. Love never dies, and even in the film's toughest moments, they give you little moments to sip while you're waiting. It was a wonderful story, and I will forever love it and remember it. The music alone is beautiful, I've saved a few songs and listen to them often, even now. Actually, this is random but I have my opinion on shuffle and ironically, 'Next Stop, Happiness' just popped up. It's funny, must be a sign. (;
If you're looking for a fresh, pure love story with great acting, clear chemistry and every twist you can imagine, then this is for you! I will recommend this to anyone interested in TV series for the rest of my life, hah! Hope this helps everyone, sorry if I'm not as sensible and sensible as I had planned. As you can tell, I'm a fan. I have never watched a TV series more than this. Three times in the whole thing, not to mention the many times I just watched an episode here and there that I liked. We invite you to watch!
