4 out of 10 lyrical
Bluemoon from Dublin, 08 Jun 2007
beautiful, lyrical film. It shows it does need a lot of special effects to make it interesting. Some shots are really well done. There is a moment where she is talking about love life as it unites people and dissolve them and as she speaks, we see the trails of the train separating and intricating one another.... There is grace and poetry about the way it was filmed and acted.

What's it about....
Her love is torn between a doctor and a poet, a man and a memory... A young painter named Zhou Yu (Gong Li) falls headlong in love with a painfully shy poet, Chen Ching (Tony Leung). Twice a week she takes the train to his town to be with him, even though he's bewildered by her near-obsessive passion. On the train, a wise-cracking veterinarian (Sun Hong-Lei) pursues Zhou Yu, but she initially resists his emotional directness...
