 More questions than answers

This film was a little slow although I did like the start and the sassiness of Qiao. I am wondering why Bin only had one year in prison, and also, why he was not there to meet Qiao when she was released. Poor form. The movie left me feeling disappointed that Bin didn’t stand by Qiao at the end. But let’s face it, she didn’t need him.

5.5 / 10

Rather disjointed and bland.

The movie starts off well and seems to have so much potential but becomes disjointed and slows almost to a halt when Qiao is sent the prison. Although the movie focuses on the transformations Qiao and Bin both undergo and how their love or relationship changes, in my opinion there just isn’t enough depth there to engage with. The strange scenes of the stranger on the train and alien tourism just dont fit, as if they are just fillers. Also, I think the disjointedness and lacking of the movie is summarised by the ending with Bin’s walkout.
