Snow Flower And The Secret Fan Reviews

Amy Curtis
We Got This Covered

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is a delicate, if sometimes disturbing, portrait of the enduring relationships that bond women together, out in theaters now.

Despite the unevenness, the sincerity of the work shines through.

It's a well shot film with beautiful cinematography, though it does feel a bit too constrained at times. But as beautiful as it was, the story and characters failed to grab me

Were it not for the slow pacing and the obviousness of message, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan would have been successful.

Although it looks fantastic, it barely registers on an emotional level because it feels so dull and manipulative.

A from Hugh Jackman as a Mandarin-singing nightclub owner is about the only thing that livens up this generation-spanning tale of female friendship.

Observer [UK]

It's a three-handkerchief weepie untainted by ugly politics.

This is London

The whole looks lush, but it doesn't deliver as it should.

Guardian

Here is a very self-conscious attempt to bridge the US-China divide through the medium of glossy, handsomely mounted cinema.

Total Film

This rich weave of eras looks pretty, but plays to an exoticised vision of old-world China, even as it demystifies the excruciating custom of foot-binding.

Little White Lies

Visual flourishes aren't enough to detract from a confused plot and mawkishly sentimental overtones.

Not even the second best Hugh Jackman cameo of the year can save it from being little more than a period curio.

An ever-so-tasteful, watered-down and unnecessarily-improved-upon adaptation of Lisa See's bestselling 2005 novel of the same name.

The Age (Australia)

Unfortunately that truth isn't illuminated with any originality: tearful confessions and pensive gazing out windows are commonplace.

The Age (Australia)

A quality arthouse film, beautifully photographed and very well acted.

FILMINK (Australia)

Despite strong performances and a rich premise, this is let down by its own self-importance and sentimentality.

Urban Cinefile

With weeping violins, wailing cellos and melancholy piano wall to wall, this sentimental story of sisterly love found, lost and found again is beautifully made. The big but is the needlessly complicated storytelling

Sisters-for-life torn apart in schmaltzy Chinese melodrama.
