Chekhov indeed
12 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

Very, very beautiful, superb colors and all of outfits. Nice acting and really strong atmosphere. All this movie needed to be great is little more... contents.

For now it remains me hollow Kar Wai movies, full of smoke and background music. Yes, it IS very Chekhov's mood, but not for cinema, i suppose. Movie must be moving. If just a little bit more. Characters should not only watch at each others emphatically and walk sometimes, but do something with the plot. And now I could tell all the script in three sentences (accordingly to three parts of the film). Brains are starving.

Also some unconvincing behavior, too impulsive and fickle. Though traditional for 'classic' literature overall.

In short, finished frame for outstanding masterpiece. 7/10
