Vertically and horizontally mediocre, 2 April 2006
Author: mondrovic from Chongqing, China

It is not too bad a film, but far from being a really good film, not even the best among Wang's works.

The story is boring and dull; The cinematography is pale and slow and dull (dont compare that with OZU, just like that one doesn't compare an orange with a panda) If you compare Shanghai Dream with Gu Changwei's Peacock or Jia Zhangke's movies, you can find how awkward Wang's film is.

If you have watched Wang's SO CLOSE TO PARADISE, you might not believe Shanghai Dream is made by the same director...

Wang is too speculative with little sincerity, not as far as i can see at least, this time
