This remake of Orioles Banished from the Flowers (1948) stars Hsin Hwa’s two biggest stars – Chung Ching and Chin Feng – as an odd couple that fall in love over the course of one eventful summer. This delightful romantic comedy – produced in color – is filled with lively musical sequences (featuring songs by hitmakers Yao Min and Chen Dieyi), a strong dose of youthful energy and great screen chemistry between its two stars.
