watching this film, i was left with too many unanswered questions at the end of it. the first thing i had to say was "...okkkk". in the end i felt a little unsatisfied. the relationship between lanxiu and shidou could have been developed a little more.
maybe i was approaching the film in the wrong manner. coming from the "old well" and "yellow river" perspective, this doesn't seem to hold up as well as some of the other 5th generation director's films.
