I’m not a fan of Patrick Kong’s series of movies that centers around the idea that every romantic relationship must be flawed in some way.  However, I find 紀念日 (Anniversary) (Blu-ray release 2016-3-21) to exceed my expectations.  This time, the message is that marriage means enduring each other, but it is supplemented by a more balanced view of marriage.  It also makes use of children to add another layer of sophistication to the story.

It is worthwhile to point out that the lead actor and actress in these series of movies were involved in a romantic relationship for 10 years – as they did in the movies.  Around the time this Blu-ray is released, they announced they broke up.  So this is possibly last movie in the series that features them both.
