Audience Reviews for Mai tian (Wheat)
Watched @ Tokyo International Film Festival 2009. Too far from what I was expecting and too incomplete in many ways. Theme itself is very interesting, for it describes a war not from soldiers' viewpoints but from women left in the castle. It deals with war without featuring bloody violence. However, the direction by Ping He is still as if he is directing an action film with a large scale, and all the characters in the film are not developed and analyzed deeply enough. Guy characters are all shallow, and the dumb guy character is even annoying seriously. Although the heroin's character is stereotypical, Bingbing Fan gives a great and powerful performance. Use of music is quite interesting, but editing sometimes is confusing. The fatal weakness of this film is boring story.
