Intriguingly, the director has successfully woven a Kafkaesque metaphor into a classically Chinese melodrama.
A modern yet timeless tragedy that's desperate, sad and rich with devotion.
Chen and Gong, two of China's most respected actors, offer two great performances in a film about love, loss and perseverance that will nearly break your heart.
Daoming just manages to keep the material from turning into a sentimental variation on "Waiting for Godot."
Heartbreaking in its depiction of ordinary lives affected by political upheaval, this ode to the fundamental values that survive even under such dire circumstances has an epic gravity that recalls another great historical romance, Doctor Zhivago.
Coming Home sinks into a conventional tragic romance rut that not even engaging performances by Gong and Chen can save.
A surfeit of melodramatic peaks weakens the Chinese director's latest film and makes it tedious to watch.
It may be too restrained for audiences who enjoy a three-hankie weepie, though the emotions it evokes it earns.

From beginning to end, the film strives to be a metaphor for the imaginary collective. It's almost perfect. [Full review in Spanish]
The first film by Zhang Yimou that doesn't reach the standards set by his first movies. [Full review in Spanish]
Li Gong shines in a nuanced performance that conveys many emotions such as sadness, confusion and a desperate longing for her husband; it is just a pity, though, that the film feels a bit repetitive and there is even an unnecessary revelation about an incident in the character's past.
