...lovely and slight

See Zhou Yu's Train for the interesting Chinese scenery, or see it to feast your eyes on the always beautiful Gong Li, but don't see it for the drama

A film that has considerably less on its mind than it thinks.

It just may be a movie that has difficulty transcending national borders.

Li fails to stoke much heat in Sun Zhou's pretentious and symbolic love triangle.

[Zhou Yu]'s contradictory impulses, as well as a convoluted narrative structure, make Zhou Yu's Train a rough ride.

The whole thing would be pretty painful if not for the presence of Gong, who makes some of it watchable.

Most, I suspect, will walk out of the theater wondering why they had to work so hard for so little reward.

Beautiful to look at but aimless as a broken compass.

When the sum of this film's parts are measured, it is nothing more than a celebration of the exquisitely beautiful Gong Li.

Zhou Yu's Train has its strengths, but it's clearly no bullet train.

A knotty, dreamy paean to romantic longing, Zhou Yu's Train is at once ravishing and precise.

Zhou Yu's Train looks good, but there's no denying that there's very little lurking underneath its pretty surface.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Has a tiny little point -- living solely by one's emotions can be a painful time-waster -- but it makes that point within a needlessly tricky structure and with too much time spent on images that amount to pretty, poetic filler.

Dramatically, this train never leaves the station.

[An] over-conceived, over-edited, under-written perfume ad.

This is one of those languid numbers where slow motion -- and there's lots of it -- is meant to signify poetry, and a line like 'I know my lake is artificial, but it's full of water' is supposed to seem lyrical.

Even the Chinese star with the soulful face can't make Zhou Yu's Train any less dreary than its confused script dictates.

The effort required at the end of Zhou Yu's Train to sort out exactly what just went down isn't worth the payoff.
