Yuyang (Han Dongjun) wants to marry Chen Wen (Zhuang Zhiqi), but while
she likes him a lot, her feelings don't exactly point in that direction.
So he makes her promise to give him 90 days to convince her otherwise, and
every day he gives her a coin, so at the end of the 90 days they can
afford a marriage license. The scheme works, Chen Wen falls in love with
Yuyang ... but at the end of the 90 days, they have more pressing matters
than getting married right away, like move in together, move forward in
life and all that - but they're a cute couple and everything seems to be
perfect. But there's Andre (Jose Acosta), a guy Chen Wen has met at work
who wants to convince her to go to Paris with him to study fashion - and
upon that Yuyang throws a jealous fit, no matter if it's justified or not.
The two break up, Chen Wen decides to go to Paris - but while packing she
stumbles upon the 90 coins again, and a little romantic secret they hold
In a nutshell, The Story of 90 Coins is romance done
right, it's short, stringent, to the point, doesn't cheese up its cute
parts - and still gets one in just the right mood, thanks to a rich visual
language that chooses atmosphere over pomp, makes the most out of little gestures,
and tells its story in a very economic yet touching way.
worth a watch, especially if romances are not your thing to begin with!
