The three-act narrative structure is very clear and the second act is particularly interesting, full of sly humor. Liao Fan's stunning performance just proves again that he is the best actor of his generation. Zhao Tao's acting is good as always. The film succeeds particularly in terms of character development. The result is hard-hitting melodrama that reflects lots about modern Chinese society.
