A pathetic minor league Soccer Goalkeeper was given a task - to spend 1 Billion in thirty days, if successful he will get 30 Billion. However, he's not allowed to tell anyone about the task and he must not own any valuables by end of it.
From World War, to revolution and ultimately rebirth, Forever Young is the story of four generations spanning a hundred years of modern Chinese history. Each generation faces its own unique set of challenges. Up against corporate corruption, the trials and tribulations of the cultural revolution, and one's duty to nation in time of war, they are faced with choosing their individual paths through history. But as the challenges and turmoil of each generation may differ as time changes, what was learned in the past cannot help but effect the choices that are made in the future as it is passed down from generation to generation. And that is the universal message that being true to yourself is precious. It is the source of strength that empowers one to become the person they want to be, to march forward as far as their hearts desire, into the future.
A poorly crafted, over-the-top cosmetically beautified pretentious film
The whole film just looked too pretentiously fake. The screenplay was terrible, just a notch higher than those so-called Chinese comedies. The nostalgic retrospection back to the 1960s, simply looked unconvincingly phony. The colors were too rich, the hairdos and hairstyles were just too modern, the dresses specially designed for those young women were just laughably modern. The screenplay was so pretentiously and poorly patched up and further deteriorated by very bad editing. The dialog, well, lot of them felt forced and unnatural. But to me, the most and worst arrangement was the color tones of this film, it's just too bright and too colorful when the scenes in the 1960s were shown. The first segment of this film was about the advertisement agency in modern day lost the business to another agency by a cunning and disloyal manager, then suddenly, it jumped more than half a century back, but the colors ridiculously became even richer and more colorful. It's just made me laugh uncontrollably, those dresses, those hairstyles, didn't feel the least correct when China and the Chinese people looked like in 1960s. The storyline, the plot and scenario, not only none of them looked real and believable, but also felt so hollow without any expectation, so phony and so bored that resulted me to quit and gave up watching. What a MEH........
