Great Movie, The one you should not miss
5 October 2005 | by (China) – See all my reviews

Great Movie. I think it is the best Chinese Movie in the recent years. With the combination of interesting story, good actors and the most important, one talented director, this movie expressed some thoughts that are rare in Chinese Movies.

I have never heard the director before, but definitely, he is a genius. In this film, you can feel the vivid happiness and pain from the very love of the man named Wenzi. And some pictures and scenes remind me of the movie Amelie, especially the scene of the painted flowers dancing on the wall of Wenzi's house.

This is one great movie, and hope the director can produce more and more movies in the near future.
