The story, such as it is, is of a pair of brothers from Hong Kong. The older brother disappeared three years ago while traveling in Mainland China. The younger brother goes to find him in the village from which he last sent a postcard.

If I hadn't taken a class in recent Chinese cinema, this film would likely have been rated a little lower, but this background helped me look for symbolism. The woman in the film obviously represented Mainland China, because she was from there, was a woman (a fairly typical symbol for Mainland China), and was always wearing red. The younger brother presumably represented Hong Kong. It occurred to me that the older brother disappeared close to the time (1997) when Hong Kong was returned to Mainland Chinese rule, which probably means something.

But despite these detailed clues, I wasn't sure what the film's overall message was supposed to be, and there was little else to engage me. Seen at Cinequest (the San Jose, CA film festival) on 2/27/2002.
