Genni Lai一段情,多少遺憾。
  "Love is only perfect when it has regretable imperfections," so goes the paradox which is elaborated to its fullest in Eileen Chang's 18 Springs.
Perhaps precisely for this reason, it has always been the most popular among her novels. Its depiction of a man and a woman in love is miraculously detailed, revealing its protoganists' characters and baring their souls along the way. In the opinion of its faithful readers, it is impossible to make the book into a movie - Chang has already made her version on the pages. What Zuni's Mathias Woo and Edward Lam attempt to do here is to invent a brand new montage on stage, interpreting the ups and downs of a romance, bringing it to an emotional finale. Co-produced by Zuni and the National Theatre Company of China in their first joint venture, its cast is headed by famous actress René Liu, who has just played the part of Eileen Chang in a television series based on the renowned writer's life. Liu will sing four original songs written specially for this occasion, each reflecting the mood of a season.
