Another true masterpiece from the grand master. Great and ever-present soundtrack, superb directing and photography, dynamic style and peerless visual impact. A "living" movie about love and loneliness in a chaotic world. An overwhelming flow of emotions. Exhilarating.
Sometimes brilliant, sometimes kinda lame. The script seem to move at random, the pace is unpredictable, and these weirdo characters won't give you many hints of what's running through their heads. (Too bad the two stories are kept separated like this.) The only sure thing is, this movie's filled with a sleepy, melanchonic mood that you can't help falling in love with.
I think the screenplay is totally uninteresting. The director tries to create a good atmosphere, and in some ways he achieves it, but how can it be a film if there isn't any poetic or creative meaning? Viewing this movie we can feel a sort of cold feeling and this sense creates a soft-movie, easy to watch but without any input for your mind.
"Artsy Hong Hong Action" demiştim ilk hikayeyi izlediğimde. Sonra, hep aynı şarkıyı dinleyen kadın ile ağlayan odanın dramını izledim. Duygulandım. Sonra, evimdeki eşyaların gönlünü aldım. Ama, hayat bu, güzel canlar: "Somehow, at some point, everything expires".
The search for the beautiful picture, the perfect color, the right framing hardly covers the weaknesses of both script & dialogue. So the urban romance becomes a long - but still enjoyable - ad clip .... La recherche de la belle image, la parfaite couleur, le bon cadrage masquent mal les faiblesses du scénario et des dialogues. Du coup le romantisme urbain du film devient un clip de pub, mais qu'on peut aimer.
