Storyline

Ping leaves her hometown for Kuala Lumper to work with her aunt. During the counteless days of boredom, her niece shares with her conversations with a pen pal during the day, while a young man named John tries to woo her at night even though she already has a boyfriend back home. Although they already set the rules from the every beginning, her belief that love conquers all still slowly strips off all her inhibitions. With authentic and relatable characters, TAN Chui-mui's debut feature was a winner at numerous film festival. There are a thousand ways for love story to be a cliché, but this film is the one that remains true and captivating.

Nothing really new
16 January 2008 | by andre_malaSee all my reviews

It is very difficult to judge a culture that is so distant from ours, like China. Yet, even not minding its extremely slow pace, often made of moments that points towards nothing (quite differently from our beloved Bergman and Antonioni), this film does not convince me at all. More than a portrait of the difficulties of women in front of romance, as most of the summaries and reviews say, it is a supposedly moral fable with an absurd thesis: as for romance, the two choices of a woman are either getting into the arms of the villain, whose callous harassment ends up being charming anyway, or refrain totally from giving vent to their impulses (which can happen only in childhood). True: in real life women do not like decent men (let alone fall in love with them) as much as they do in sappy TV fictions and in guest columns. Yet, if this film portrays reality as it is, as other reviewers have said, it is really enough ground for depression.
