I think it's a wonderful and very poetic movie. It gives a real feeling on how women in their 30's are considered as "faded flowers"... I've been living in China for some years, and there are so many things in this movie which are true, very simple but so true. Details, clothes, street life, rules, taxis...Pay attention to the landscape, ShangHai, the most westerner of all the cities of China, as it was the use to call her in the 30's :) And look at the contrast between the people : government workers, journalists, hairdressers, vs new business class. Remember the end of the cultural revolution is not that far away, not mentioning the massacre some years after. All of this followed by the big explosion of the private business market.
