Based on the novel Summer, The Portrait of a 19 Year Old by Japanese mystery writer Soji Shimada, Edge of Innocence 夏天十九岁的肖像 is not your typical love story. Instead of the fluttering feelings of love at first sight, there is an accidental witness to a crime that takes a different twist when the main protagonist is drawn to the possible perpetrator.
The movie is directed by Chang Jung-Chi and stars Huang Zitao (A Chinese Odyssey), Ora Yang Caiyu, Calvin Tu and Vivien Li Meng. The cast seems perfect for the theme of innocence but I also get the sense that we are simply seeing the calm before the storm. Ultimately, this is a thrilling romance about secrets, racy passion and action.
As Kang Qiao enters Xia Yingying’s world, he finds himself entangled in a complicated mess full of danger and uncertainty with people tailing him and threatening his existence. Meanwhile, Xia Yingying tries to put an end to their ‘summer love’. This is popular idol Huang Zitao’s first leading role in a movie. If you are a fan of his, let the countdown begin as the movie premieres in ten days!
