Masterfully Melancholy
4 March 2012 | by SuraditSee all my reviews

Fantastic movie. The acting was superb and Yulai Lu gave a stellar performance. I can't imagine that anyone could watch this without being emotionally drained.

It was a complicated movie that will require a second and maybe a third viewing to understand fully, but the emotional impact was stunning even if every detail of the plot wasn't immediately obvious.

Although there was little dialogue, the two main actors conveyed the emotional roller coaster that defined their relationship marvelously. It may have leaned a little heavily on symbolism at times, but the pain caused by love was unequivocal.

Because of one negative review here, I expected that I would just fast-forward through this movie to see if there was anything worth watching later (since it was described by one person as slow moving and "artsy-fartsy"), but I remained glued to my seat watching every minute and expect to watch it again very soon. And I will definitely search for anything else Yulai Lu is in.
