  • I thinks it’s about the 8th time I am rewatching your video. I have been a fan of the movie since it came out, but I am fascinated how deeply and truly you have managed to explain the cinematography and aesthetics of the film. So delicate, so respectful. Thank you very much for doing what you are doing! Kate

  • Thank you so much for your thoughtful review.

    From the moment I first saw the trailer scene where "Yumeji's Theme" starts, with that slender and stylish woman so languidly moving towards the card game, towards a partially closed room that you could look into but not enter, I was powerfully and viscerally drawn to this film.

    My wife was from HK, so for many reasons I found this movie highly evocative and atmospheric, and while it is subtle it imparts a powerful emotive force and sublimity.

    Your analysis was beautifully informed and helped me to understand some elements without being overly academic or dry.
    I will look forward to discovering more of your writing!

  • So art is when one can show how in the process of seeking happiness and comfort or just raw pleasure -through this self centered movement-a human conceive distorted images from reality.
    I may watch this tonight….if my cat agrees.

  • I greatly enjoyed this analysis, which I can confidently and contradictorily say was not the case for the film itself.

  • I knew I'd love this movie and I was not disappointed; bittersweet, unrequited love, yearning, longing and pain. And all suffused by exquisite cinematography and sumptuously lit. Beautiful, understated (beating the British at what they do best!) acting.. A feast for the heart and the mind! So glad I bought the Criterion Collection version; a movie to treasure!

  • and here I was thinking to myself for a moment that they were only pretending to be married (since we literally don’t get to see each of their spouses) throughout the film, in a 60s era Hongkong, where landlords will not rent rooms to unmarried couples and while they tried pretending as far as they could, eventually they gave in, i.e., they could not keep their relationship because of the social constraints and had to break up. Alright I'll just stop since I know it sounds ridiculous. 😂

    but that’s what a great movie does. Leaves you to your own evaluation. Amazing piece of art in this otherwise overdone genre.

  • Please have a look at the new Indian Tamil Movie ("96"). This movie has a similar effect and one freezes in time. The movie has a hangover and every revisit brings new set of questions with a lot of nerve-stopping scences in the movie. This I call an immotional Master Piece. I think NERDWRITER can give a new dimension with his voice and perception. Here is the link: ; ; . ;

  • I really enjoyed this essay, and it even inspired me to watch this movie sooner than I intended. It is amazing piece of art, with its slow pace, mood, and the theme of desire, longing and unfulfilled dreams it resonates so much. I want to thank you for your effort on this one, good work.
