Soulful film with Chinese characters with which westerners can identify, yet it presents a unique contemporary Chinese angst.

The fuss over this movie is beyond me. The storyline is incoherent. Despite a promising, dramatic start, it's as if a bunch of film students cobbled together a script. If this movie wasn't from china, the criticism would be decisively strong. The ambitions if the movie far exceed its ability to deliver. Or maybe I'm missing something in a supposedly deep eastern story.
