    i've seen the movie.

    It's not as bad as some critics made it out to be. Though it's not as entertaining and colorful as 881, the storyline is certainly stronger. This is encouraging. Keep it up!

    Just to share with you a review which i read, thought it's a good piece that explores into the deeper meaning of the film.

    十二莲花

    第一次从电视上看见十二莲花的预告片,心里的OS是“哇,有没有搞错?陈子谦又拍这种福建歌舞 电影?, 有够烂的咯。这一次, 无论媒体给几颗星或吴作栋说什么(吴作栋上一次对881的评语是Like Broadway (白乐汇)!),我坚决不会看这部电影!”

    机缘巧合下, 我拿到了四张十二莲花的complimentary tickets.

    我开始的想法是把四张票都让给朋友看。(虽然是免费戏票, 可是我也不想浪费我的时间)
    打了好几通电话, 免费戏票竟然没人要!!朋友的理由是:

    1。)怕了陈子谦的七月歌台
    2。)上了一次当, 花钱看881, 结果一肚子气
    3。)不看歌舞片
    4。)不想浪费时间
    5。)多数朋友的回应是 YEEEEEEE....

    没办法, 只好拖着男朋友进电影院。我们两个人完全抱着进电影院吹冷气, 顺便睡个午觉的心情。

    电影开始了不久, 就开始唱歌了。 听见电影院里的人说:“这么快就唱歌?!” 跟着一阵笑声。。。

    不知道过了多久,发现原来电影已经播映一半了! 才知道自己被电影里的剧情深深吸引了。

    戚玉武把姑爷仔的角色演得丝丝入扣。
    刘玲玲演的疯子一点也不做作, 非常入戏。
    王欣也很不错。
    大家演技都很称职!

    我觉得十二莲花的票房之所以那么差, 是因为很多人和我一样的想法。

    因为上一部电影881的剧情实在太弱了, 可是说根本没有剧情可言。
    影评人把上一部电影881写得太好了,其实是一部完全没有剧情的电影 (年轻人多数都不会欣赏这类电影),让那些花钱看戏的人感到很失望。

    我认为大众人都因为881而拒看或根本不给十二莲花任何机会!

    所以, 在这里想告诉那些还没看电影十二莲花的人, 进去看戏吧!

    你们肯定会有一个意外的惊喜!
    电影十二莲花完全和881不一样!
    电影剧情感人肺腑!
    陈子谦很成功的一部电影!

    我觉得十二莲花完全跳出881的框框, 陈子谦不应该痛哭!
    (真正跳不出框框的是梁导演, 他拍的电影真的是越来越差。 我也看了钱不够用2, 评语是没有新意!)


    星期天看完电影后,我传了100多个简讯给我所有的朋友, 告诉他们十二莲花赞!比钱不够用2更好看!很多朋友回复我 "真的吗?" 不过已经有好几个朋友都因为我的评语, 而决定看十二莲花!!!

    还有, 当我和一起看电影的陌生人走出戏院时, 大家的评语都很正面. 一致叫好! 认为比881好太多了.

    我相信看过十二莲花的人都会推荐这部电影给他们的朋友! 所以会有更多人进戏院看戏! 十二莲花的票房一定会超越钱不够用2!

    在此, 希望大家看过电影后,可以告诉我,老年的莲花到底是死了,清醒了, 还是?? 或则陈子谦可以告诉我,到底他心目中, 莲花的结局是什么呢?
