Soul Mate Synopsis
LI ANSHENG, an ordinary 30 year-old working class, whose quiet life in Shanghai is suddenly disrupted by the publication of a novel, entitled “Qiyue and Ansheng”, a chronicle of her friendship with QIYUE during her youth. In an accidental encounter with SU JIAMING, her long repressed memories are unleashed… Qiyue and Ansheng seemed destined to become friends from the moment they entered high school at the age of thirteen. The two girls were complete opposites; one was calm like water, the other was passionate like fire. They were inseparable and believed that their bond would last for the rest of their lives.



However, the cruelty falls in when both of them fell in love with the same man, Sui Jiaming, during their age of eighteen. Despite trying hard to suppress her feelings for Jia-ming, it took just a single moment for Ansheng's youthful passion to ignite; and suddenly they were hopelessly entangled in a complicated love-triangle.



Ansheng tried to distance herself from Jiaming by pretending to be in a relationship with another man and leave with him. On the day of her departure, Qiyue discovered Ansheng's relationship with Jiaming and decided to keep her knowledge of their affair secret. The two best friends went on their separate ways, knowing things would never be the same. It was the beginning of Ansheng’s vagabond existence while Qiyue stay behind to safeguard her love with Jiaming, while awaiting for Ansheng’s return. The lives of the two women have never crossed path since then. The only thing that keep them connected, is the unbroken stream of postcards that they sent each other.



Not wanting to lose each other, they tried to reconcile but Jiaming remained the obstacle which they could not overcome. More than ten years had passed since Jia-ming last encountered Anseng. To his surprise, Anseng and Qiyue both lead parallel lives. Even more shocking is the discovery of along buried secret shared by the women –a secret that serves as an emblem of their youth and the proof of their friendship.

Soul Mate Movie Review 《七月與安生》觀后感
Attended the Gala Premiere at Plaza Singapura, which Derek Tsang, the film director, graced the event, sharing his thoughts of getting several nominations for the 53rd Golden Horse Awards and the rationale of picking the 2 actresses for the movie. The movie brings about many thoughts and makes one ponder what is the underlying messages.  At first glance of the trailer, I have thought that the movie is about homosexuality and bisexuality, but it is pretty much about the friendship of two gals. The friendship of the girls are so deep that the triangle relationship entangled them with so much hate and love. Love the twist at the end and how the friendship carries on for eternal.  After watching the movie, I can understand why the movie received 7 nominations for the upcoming 53rd Golden Horse Awards.

電影令人不禁探討故事想要傳遞的訊息。初看電影預告時,誤以為這是一部有關同性戀及雙性戀的電影。然而,這是一部關於兩女真摯友情的電影,卻因三角戀情而愛恨交織。很喜歡電影尾部的轉折點,堅固的友情,穿越時空,而延續下去。看完電影后,我能明白為什麼這部電影會入圍第53屆金馬獎7個獎項提名。
