歲月神偷 (2010)
Echoes of the Rainbow

Reviewed by: mrblue

The positive and compelling momentum generated during Echoes of the Rainbow's first two acts is shot down quicker than Rob Schneider at a Mensa convention via the introduction of cancer. Once one of the characters gets a random nosebleed, we're off and running into the realm of melodrama. While things are handled well enough during the finale to the point that viewers other than myself who aren't totally jaded might have to bust out a Kleenex or two, the heavy-handed nature of the emotional exaggeration (which uses tired cliches like a slow-motion shot of flowers falling to the floor) comes off as hollow and unnecessary.
