Hi members:

Hey hv anybody seen the Lover that starred Tony Leung and Jane March. What are your views? Is it erotic? Romantic? Boring? Typical?

It's been awhile since I saw it. Can't remember it too well except that it was damn sexy (i was in my late teens so anything with even a bare shoulder would have done me in).
The movie is NOT typical. It deals with some controversial issues. Pretty obvious. The girl is like 14. And the man is Asian and girl white. When is the last time you saw an Asian man white girl couple in the media? In away like Lolita except its Lolita telling the story and also Lotila (did?) love the guy.

Hi Zampano

Thank you for responsing to my query. Yes, u r right this movie is "atypical".

I hope u will be glad to know that the actress, Jane March was actually 18 years old when she acted in that movie. She was born in 1973 in England.

Frankly, i m glad that J. J. Annaud took the opportunity to use Marguerite Duras' semiautobiography to depict the relationship betw a Chinese man and an Caucasian woman. Asian men do hv beautiful butts too and are just as sexy and virile as any other.

Check out my review of this movie. Forewarn: It is a little bit long.
