This is a fine, quiet story about a Chinese girl, torn between her work and the care of her mother. Although the general impression is good it leaves a lot of questions unanswered. F.i., why did a Dutch crew make the effort of going all the way to Taipe and shoot a movie in a foreign language and foreign culture? Where do all the different story lines interconnect? Are there any answers to the different story lines? Why was the professor so shocked? Did the girl actually see the creature or was it just a figment of her imagination. Why did the movie end like it did? Maybe the story lines should remain open, I don't know, but I was left with the feeling that the movie was not finished. Anyway, it's good to watch a quiet movie. They are so rare, nowadays.
