Being able to see in the dark does not benefit the outgoing Amelie in the fast-paced Beijing nightlife. In fact, it might do her more harm than good.

The Eye of Silence was a pleasant surprise for me. I rate it as follows: VISUAL (2 stars) - the cinematography and editing were excellent with many candid views of modern Beijing, particularly at night. STORY (1 star) - the premise of the story is good and, despite a couple of major plot holes, it is engaging enough to warrant a full viewing. strong use of flashback to explain Amelie's nature and make her more endearing to the audience. ACTING (1 star) - while the lead, Xin Wang, was completely capable of carrying the movie, the supporting characters were a bit one-dimensional and, unfortunately, comical in dramatic situations. SOUND (1 star) - sound editing was excellent. Accompanying music was appropriate for each scene and did not interfere with the storytelling. DIRECTION (1 star) - Sapolsky does fine work here manning the helm. This is not his first collaboration with Wang - I hope they continue to work together and hone their craft. I anticipate with interest the promise of future collaborations.
