A beautiful film
4 June 2008 | by (Isle of Man, British Isles) – See all my reviews

When her artist boyfriend Sam (Ekin Cheng) dies, Maan (Karena Lam) is left lost, alone, and with thoughts of self-harm. She pines over his memory, and becomes obsessed with his recollections of a landscape he remembers vividly from his childhood.

Maan travels to Qingdao, where Sam grew up, to try and find this mysterious location. She stays with a cousin of Sam's, but wallows in her misery, copying a page of Sam's diary every day while she vainly tries to find someone who can help her. Unfortunately, none of the locals recognise the landscape she describes.

Eventually, and after several hesitant encounters, she finds help in the form of Lit (Ye Liu), a laconic postman with whom she slowly bonds. But can she find happiness again with Sam constantly on her mind?

This beautiful film struck many chords with me when I first watched it a few years ago, and re-watching it was a real pleasure. Qingdao is a lovely location, the gentle storyline unfolds pleasingly, and the ending is magically breathtaking. It's easily one of my favourite films of the last few years.
