| Lovely artistic film but not for everyone
Great film but not for simple romance seekers.

Firstly congrats to the filmmakers for being nominated on the Montreal Filmfestival. The film is an interesting translation of the forgotten Chinese culture waved in the French romance. The philosophy of the film director is greatly reflected in the film with you have to see through in order to enjoy. It is definitely one of the lesser films that you have to watch multiple times to unravel all of its greatness.

The director choose an unique editing manner which made the film little difficult to understand. The story was also complex as it reflected inner desires and conflicts. As the scenes and the main actress were stunning, the film was covered in deep sorrow. But it is clearly not a film suited for every public. If you don't like art-house films you probably would hate it.

All in all, if you like artistic films that sets your mind to think and want to enjoy great beauty? WATCH!
