This is one of those very slow and dreamy ones but the story is interesting enough to stay engaged and Lunmei Kwai (Blue Gate Crossing) is delightful. She receives cassette tapes of nature and community sounds from a guy, a professional sound-recordist, who thinks he is sending them to the girl who broke his heart. He is capturing sounds from all the places he had hoped to visit with her before she broke up with him. He meets up on his travels with a psychiatrist, played wonderfully by Siao-guo Jia, who is also suffering a broken heart and doing some soul searching of his own. Lunmei Kwai sets out to discover and visit all the places the sounds are coming from with the outside hope of maybe meeting the guy who is sending them. Very bittersweet ending that's neither happy nor sad but wide open to possibility.
