For the summer vacation that many children are looking forward to, it is difficult for Chen Xiaojin.

The Love Tree of Nanming
This movie has a touch of history to it. At its core, is a story about love, but its heavily intertwined with mythological legends and folk tales, and even the story occurs across two time periods between the past and the present with 700 years difference. It’s very appealing to see the type of love that can overcome the boundaries of time and other external factors. It definitely feels more real than other counterparts in the same genre, and it delves into many many other topics related to the politics of the country and other various disasters, but seeing how love can overcome all that is a really gratifying feeling that is worth the time of everyone.

The movie is a chinese adaptation of the novel The Murder in Kairotei or Kairoutei Satsujin Jiken by Keigo Higashino. This alone should be enough to get you on board the train really. Keigo Higashino is a master of detective fiction and his stories can leave a deep impact on the viewer, simply because they are intended for that. To push the metafictional layer of storytelling, just like in this movie where the protagonist speaks to the viewer and tells them about her intent to murder for revenge. As with every good mystery, the movie contains many hints that allow you to solve the case even before the answer appears on screen, and it would be a lot of fun to think about the murderer along the way.
