Sadly, another fantastic movie most audience just spit on it
6 March 2017 | by summerzspSee all my reviews

This is the best Chinese movie I have watched during the past 5 years, it is about deep emotion and life experience. Sadly, not too many people feels the same way. I agree with a review I read from a Chinese website which says, this movie is not for youngsters, it is for those who have so many tough experiences and failed relationships, only these people know what the characters are talking about and mad about.

I feel sad not just because this movie is under judged, also because I have become a person who have to endure the loneliness and pretend to be normal most of the time, like Chenmo, like the girl without tears on the train of 2046. The images of 2046 keep popping up in my mind now and then, even though nobody understand that movie as well.

Anyway, I get the point of director Wang and Zhang, I enjoyed this movie quite much. Sincerely thank you both.
