Audience Reviews for Changhen ge (Everlasting Regret)
I don't know if there is any particular reason for the short & rapid shots editing throughout the whole feature, which left no room for viewers to feel & think further. And I am not sure if it was Wang Anyi's original portrayal in her novel, all characters here are so superficially developed including Wang Qiyao, the very core character played by Sammi Cheng. As a consequence, no matter how hard Cheng had tried, there were just something missing here & there; not mentioning Cheng's incapability to fully handle her role, especially the older part. I believe Stanley Kwan, too, had tried hard to capture the periodic Shanghai ambience but somehow he just lacks the indigenous blood flowing inside those real, native contemporary Chinese filmmakers.
