Excellent
23 August 2001 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

This movie is an interesting look at the artistic underground in China, but more than that its a thought provoking meditation on the value of life. Its also a good story... the ending has several unexpected and shocking plot twists, and this movie will leave you thinking for a while. In spite of (or perhaps because of) the rather dark quality of the movie, it leaves you with a deeper appreciation for life.
