Masterful story of broken love.
22 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

If you like the films of Wong Kar-Wai you will enjoy this vital, actionful and heart-wrenching love story. I just saw I Love You at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival where I also saw festival darling Dopamine, another film about love. Where Dopamine was a predictable and slick televisionism, I Love You was surprising, brutal and real. Despite its emotional and musical embellishments, the film engages us immediately in the tragic love of a flawed young couple. Zhang Yuan's simple fevered frame never lets up through several unexpected turns and revelations. The performances by the two leads are fresh and unusual. The story takes place in small spaces and a bleak city, but the electric relationships are familiar, frustrating and funny. Zhang doesn't employ the same stylistic flourish as Wong, but the masterful direction, insightful characterizations and poetic camera mark the two as members of the same generation of Chinese filmmakers telling urban stories rich in human perception. An original and overwhelming movie about love. I will seek out this director's other films.
