香港中古廣告: 鐵達時 天長地久(周潤發,吳倩蓮)1992
I recently discovered this TV Ad from 1993, I simply love the feel and theme (set during the Anti-Japanese War in China 1937-1945) about two lovers whom get married before the man whom is a Chinese pilot with the airforce flies off to fight the Japanese during the war. I used to LOVE and i mean LOVE LOVE Jacqueline Wu Chien-Lien...she's the actress in this ad..I also love the ending of the ad where it says '不在乎天長地久﹐只在乎曾經擁有'( can be loosely translated as ' Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all')
