(****): Thumbs Up A well-acted and intriguing film. Another great film from Hou Hsiao-Hsien film.

In the city, Ying is an apprentice by day and goes to night school, and Huen works as a helper at a tailors. Everyone thinks they are meant for each other, so do they. They fail to see time and fate are beyond their control.[/color][/size][/font] [center][img]http://bp0.blogger.com/_3mCOm4wxK3M/R6oIROTsrUI/AAAAAAAAAFY/4uANVAzaDYM/s320/dust.jpg[/img][/center] [font=Times New Roman][size=4][color=white]What a great movie. Everything from the amazing opening sequence to the subtle finish is just about perfect. Hou does almost everything I loved about the first third of Three Times here. Yet, obviously, it's sustained throughout the entire movie. Let me start by saying that Hou and cinematographer Pin Bing Lee (hopefully I didn't screw that up) make trains and tunnels look about as fascinating as I've ever seen them here.

In some ways, this movie seemed like everything Atonement wanted to be story-wise, only this was done much better character-wise.[/color][/size][/font]
I liked this one, but as usual with Hou, didn't love it. It took me a while to figure out the characters and their relations to each other (Hou is never very helpful in that regard) but once that became clear I started getting more into it. At least it sort of had a point to it.
