Wildly romantic.

Despite its flaws, the film has the same dreamy, romantic melancholy that distinguishes Wong's best films.
67
Norah Jones, making her big-screen debut as a wistful wanderer, is a beautiful blank, and the fragments barely add up to a movie.
63
Music and nostalgia are what fuel all this filmmaker's movies, though, even a half-baked translation like this one.

Premiere
All this is frustrating, as the picture contains a few grace notes that remind one what an acute filmmaker Wong can be.

The Hollywood Reporter
The director is chasing a mood here -- a mood, an atmosphere and feelings -- much as he did in "In the Mood for Love."

Often ponderous, sometimes pretentious and mostly clichéd, this contrived meditation on longing and loss feels like a missed opportunity.
50
A stunner of a movie. But all those gorgeous images never add up to a full picture.
50
Alternately precious and vapid, the movie attempts to wrest metaphors from a jar of house keys, and eternal verities from pastry. Slice the pie how you will, it's still half-baked.

Chicago Tribune
Isn't eye candy; it's a drool-worthy slice of eye pie.

Miami Herald
It's beautiful to look at, but there's little there to savor.
