The Man ends up where?
9 August 2011 | by nextlifeSee all my reviews

This movie borrows a lot from Wong Kar Wai in my opinion, mostly from 2046 and In the Mood For Love.

It does a great job mixing the music with visually beautiful cinematic shots, mixing in narration with on screen action, and in some ways has a simpler story than the stories Wong Kar Wai tells.

I enjoyed the flashbacks that showed the girls when they were young.

I always wonder though why the man who both girls fall in love with is so attractive, because he doesn't seem to have that much going for him. He is not that attractive, although he does seem philosophical and somewhat kind.

The music is particularly significant because it blends so well with the sensuous visuals. The soft shots of the women bathed in an almost ethereal light are stunning.

I am not sure of the ending though. The man walks away and goes we know not where, but true to character there is another woman ready to give herself to him but he can't make a decision about her either and walks away. I am sure this is just for theater because in real life he would have gotten on the boat with her and escaped the chaos about to ensue.

One of the reviewers said that the Chinese have terrible endings, they just don't know how to end a movie. I disagree, I love Chinese movies because most of them don't have a fake Hollywood happy ending. And they make you think.

It's a movie you want to see again, because it is not easy.

My one negative comment about this movie is that the subtitles are in white and when juxtaposed onto a white screen there is no way in hell if you don't understand Mandarin that an English speaking viewer can see the words.
