Pointless with few redeeming qualities
24 September 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I was not impressed at all with this movie. The beginning, in which the characters are introduced, seems promising. But from there it goes nowhere, and to aggravate things it takes a very long time (over 2 hours) to get nowhere. There is plenty of dialogue, but most of it is clichéd and repetitive. The character of Jochem especially added absolutely nothing to the story. My guess is that the movie was supposed to give a 'slice of life' of people in modern urban China. Certainly there are some nice shots of the Shanghai skyline and a few funny moments highlighting how much China must have changed the last few decades. But the uninteresting characters and pointless drawn-out scenes mostly leave a feeling of immense boredom.
