mind-provoking
26 March 2005 | by (China) – See all my reviews

i've already watched this masterpiece over more than ten times, each time i am destined to be more appalled by its fine and delicate structure and distinctive directing style than last time, it tells a story about a bunch of superficially disconnected couple who are,were or will be experiencing their turning crossroads of lifetime, but with the help of surroundings,inner self,and willpower.they managed to hurdle those obstacles and avoid debacle in time. i especially enjoy the final episode which depicts a lost lovebird who can't find her way back to her newly-met boyfriend when facing a host of buildings,a picturesque resemblance of lost in translation. above all, it's certainly a touching and melting flick for every generation and gender
