    每個人心中也有一個甚至多個不能說的秘密,人與人之間的秘密更加深不可測... 縱使一家人也會有秘密,長大成人,秘密也許更多,更需要收藏

    Beautiful cinematography that perfectly captures the city's fog-shrouded milieu and melancholic discoveries which parallel the characters' interior lives.

    Director Yibai Zhang's got a real knack for capturing a city on film. His previous work "Longest Night in Shanghai" showed the glamour of that city at night. This one captures the gray industrialism of Chongqing. There's a mystery brewing beneath this slice of life low-key indie that's never fully explained, only suggested. Solid performances from Karen Mok's beautiful legs and especially Wenli Jiang. It's great to see mature independent minded stuff like this coming from the mainland. <a href='http://sitenoise-atthemovies.blogspot.com/2009/01/lost-indulgence-mi-guo-2008-china-zhang.html' target='_blank'>sitenoise at the movies: Lost, Indulgence (Mi Guo) (2008) China</a>

    Very mature work from Zhang Yibai. Love the cinematography and the fact that Zhang finally tells a story worthy this visual beauty and perfection. However, Zhang's decision to add a tentative explanation in the pic's last fifteen minutes almost spoils the whole thing, I feel, since the mystery plot is only secondary to character development in this otherwise terrific movie.
