Good characters, insightful on relationships, especially the main one as it hits its seven year mark with complications. Zhang Yibai maybe tries to be a little too offbeat to tell this simple story, a few too many fade-to-black moments, a thread or two left unresolved, but he is trying to make the realities a little dreamlike and ever so slightly jolting. He repeats scenes from different genesis points. His characters break the fourth wall and address the audience. He does a number of things that I generally dislike but its a sign of his talent that when all is said and done I really enjoyed the film. Jinglei Xu is very charming.
