Title : Inference Notes / Tui Li Bi Ji / 推理笔记
Runtime : 90 minutes
Genre : Drama, Thriller, Mystery
Released year : 2017
Country : China
Cast : Duling Chen, Po Hung Lin
Plot :

Xia Zaoan is a mathematics genius. She receive a heart transplant as she had a chronic heart diseases. After the transplant, Zaoan found herself questioning the owner of the heart that she received. She began digging on the case with the help of the members of Inferences club, Mi Kaka and the friend of the possible heart owner, Li Xiaochong. Through their plans, Xia Zaoan found herself caught in the probability killing. 

I honestly have a high expectation on this movie and I found myself crushed to the ground. :(


First of all, I don't know where I should start. Hm. I coincidentally came across this movie on the usual website that I watch movies and I decide to give it a shot because of the synopsis. I was expecting a large scale crime and the untold truth. But, all of the that doesn't happen. 

This movie is simply about Xia Zaoan looking for the owner of her new heart. Along the story, she develop feeling to Li Xiaochong which I found really disturbing. It is not because of the mature scene which is not found in the movie but because of the romance theme did not fit the context of this movie. All of the scenes that involve their romance are totally bored me out that I had to stop watching for a couple of times. 

As for the owner of her new heart, it really is the friend of Li Xiaochong who was killed by unexpected person. Honestly, I had lost my interest on who killed Li Xiaochong's friend because it take too long and the scenes to uncover the truth are mostly just a mere filler scenes. He was killed by a group of geniuses that wanted to prove that the principle of probability (if I'm not mistaken) is real. As the math genius herself, Xia Zaoan is able to prove to the group that the principle can be prove wrong with the unexpected event.

Anyway, this is one of those confusing movies that I ever watch and is definitely one of my least favorite. The only thing that I can understand is that, in one answer, there will be millions and billions possibilities that the answer can be change. Well, I will leave with my favorite quote from the movie,

"Even smart people gets stupid sometimes - Li Xiaochong"
p/s : never get your hopes high, you will be disappointed


  1. I was about to watch this movie because of the synopsis too but I ended watching Radiation House instead lol. Thanks for the review though. The movie seems promising, looking at the concept hiks - might give it a try later!
