The chemistry between our two hotties really isn't there and the story takes an unnecessary turn with her mother but, whatever...in the end I guess we get what we hoped for.
But visually...I say more unknown Chinese directors should get a cinematographer from 'In the Mood for Love' on the team because this movie's overall look totally made it a great watching experience. The colors of Shanghai's cityscape glimmer so beautifully through the wide shots of a dark city and nighttime skyscrapers, high-rise moments of Ruxi in her office and apartment are perfect, that certain glow that lingers over Ruxi and Sai's hotel interactions, along with some elegant transitions.
Hollywood has never really stunned me with so much visual treatment for a big-city story of romance.
