Don't pay attention to the star rating, this movie was one of the picks of this years Rotterdam festival. I found it rather confusing at points and this was made no easier by some apparently rushed subtitling, hopefully this will be resolved if it is more widely released. The story centers on a world weary man who becomes obsessed with a serial blind-dating student, who bears a resemblance to a nightclub singer/pianist. The film has the same interesting plot twists that can make new Chinese cinema so good, but benefits enormously from external cinematography courtesy of Chris Doyle. The acting is engaging and the soundtrack excellent. A definite must see if you have an interest in new Chinese cinema.
