dear lee.
29 March 2006 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

obviously this movie is not for every kind of audience, the lack of content you see.. is proportional to you very occidental mind. of course you need some philosophical background to actually understand the subtleness of oriental culture, i am afraid you needed to do some research before making any judgments. Not every person in the world thinks the way American people do, so be open to possibilities.

I saw it yesterday and I was overwhelmed with the beauty in the narrative of the story. The director had a very unique way of making you feel what he wanted you to feel. Some things you may not understand if you don't have some historical background or if you don't know the meaning of Chinese symbols etc. Its quite good.
