In December 2012, the Tuscaloosa News reported that a PhD candidate in Theoretical Particle Physics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Alabama was arrested on charges of stalking and making terrorist threats. A deposition filed in Tuscaloosa County District Court said that he sent threatening emails to several UA officials, including the university's president and other administrators; some of the emails included references to this film and implications that the thwarted physics student character's actions in the movie would be a model for a real-life attack at UA.

I started watching this film with the IMDb reviews in mind. Nothing could prepare me to what I have seen. Definitely a great director. The story is told with subtlety, depression is painted with soft strokes, one almost doesn't even know what caused it. A story of minimal events that makes a life. Strangely, and I feel sorry to say that, it is the first Chinese film I have seen that embraces foreign culture, and in such a way. The only thing that is bad in this film are the title credits and the end which is maybe too dramatic, but beautiful. Watch it. Yes, I am watching the end right now, too dramatic, and the end credits look like the start one. Great film.
