Sing (Cheung Ying) is in love with his poor country cousin, Tou (Hung Sin Nui).
Reviewer Score: 7
His mother (Wong Man Lei) disapproves due to Tou's low upbringing and fear that she is a golddigger. Instead she betroths him to Ji (Nam Hung) who's father lend her twenty grand. When Sing's mother bribes Tou's father (Wong Cho-San) to feign Tou's death, trying to cure his melancholy over their separation, Sing's sister (Mui Yee) assists her brother in regaining his true love .
Partly a fedual melodrama (with a matriarch this time), partly tragic romance and one happy ending tacked on.
Quite enjoyable due to the great cast. Cheung Ying and Hung Sin Nui are a great pair, though her role usually is played by Pak Yin, Mui Yee is, again, cute as a button and Wong Man Lei is solid as the fierce mother. Nam Hung is very young in this film.
A very young Law Lan can be spotted playing one of Ji's girlfriends sitting around a table while Tou marvels at the magical phonograph.
The film opens with a scene of peach blossoms being harvested while a folk song is sung and ends a year later when the blossom are in bloom again.
