Sincerely, The Rotten Tomatoes Team
This movie introduced me to my first crush, Tony Leung Ka-fai. I feel the film showed two people victims of their own culture's demands and traditions finding comfort in each other. It wasn't a sex-fest. They each craved for some sort of physical affection that was denied by their families and they found it in each other. I feel The Lover portrays that beautifully. I wish more films would show sensuality as a connection rather than a way to get the audience off. This film deserves a bravo.
rottentomatoes is joke...this movie suitable for deserved 8/10 rating ...what a joke
Contrary to the majority of the critics, i really enjoyed this film. At a slow pace, and initially erotically charged, the film slowly unwinds it's emotional core with the help of Gabriel Yared's score, and turns into quite a touching film.
Very Good, I liked it in the early 1990's but knot as much now.
Tony really brought chinaman to life. That tall and sexy guy, hesitated and struggled. He has the willing but no gut to love.
At the time I really liked this movie. Now it does not seem as exciting.
7.3/10, my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-28I
The.Lover UNRATED. Explora a o vertigo pelo Amor Proibido, A incerteza da Paixão correspondida um amor improvavel que se revela de formas diversa.
Uma fotografia e uma gestão do Tempo Notaveis, A banda sonora releva e acrescenta valor na definição dos ambientes,
It's a haunting love story. The subtlety and the chemistry delivered by the characters are great. Not suitable for people who seek for happy ending or cheesy romance.
The film is boring and the porn is bad.
