21 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

Very sweet, full of repressed longing, and nicely surreal.

Though not an action film, this film shares a couple qualities with "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." The film has a feeling of myth to it, and the film conveys a feeling of a very different culture. Not all of the world is like (or wants to be just like) America, and this film shows how despite globalization and McDonaldsization of many aspects of living, important differences remain. There are different cultures, and there are some very different ways of approaching film-making.
