A little like a blind date - sometimes charming, sometimes difficult, never revealing too much at once, and always leaving you with plenty to think about afterwards.

Rene Liu is winsome in this very subtle performance and sympathetic role of a woman suffering from loneliness.

Audience Reviews for Zheng hun qi shi (The Personals)

a very well acted film starring rene liu and much more complex than the movie description and reviews admit. Comparison to Hal Hartley films are loose. While this film had flashes of comedy, it is better categorized as a drama.
