A teacher just taught my class today about "when films are considered good". He mentioned that when you can watch an entire film without any understanding of the language, but still get it... thats because the film script is fantastic. Now I don't speak more than 5 words mandarin and I literally watched the whole film from beginning to the end. The actors body language, camera perspectives, music and the landscape is great to see. It's enough to tell me a story even while I don't understand his and hers yipper yapper. Of course i'm going to see this one again with subtitles at least, but I have to mention the fact that this movie got me interested in a positive way. If you're a bit of a film lover and know a thing or two about making films and what "great" shots are, man - this movie has a bunch of great shots. A lot of shots are very dynamic, the only thing that could be a bit annoying is the rotation of the camera when pointed on a character. It is amazingly done, but its done a bit too often. Emotions are brought very well; and I gotta say those actors delivers great performance! And man! Those filming locations are nice! What more can I tell ... The storytelling got me in a strange language. A good romance/drama.
