Movie Info

30-year-old working woman Li Ansheng's life in Shanghai is suddenly disrupted by the publication of a novel, entitled "July and Ansheng," a chronicle of her friendship with July during her youth. Coupled with an accidental encounter with Su Jia-Ming, her long repressed memories are unleashed with the force of a tsunami--the two girls seemed destined to become friends from the moment they entered high school. Though they were inseparable and believed that their bond would last for the rest of their lives, the cruelty of youth eventually led them to separate paths. Even more shocking is the discovery of a long-buried secret shared by the women--a secret that serves as an emblem of their youth and the proof of their friendship.

  • A gorgeously shot, tear-stained love letter to female friendship that also provides a fascinating look into contemporary, urban China.

  • What's most intriguing about Soul Mate is how it tells a female-centric story. Here, the ladies are front and Soul Mate, independence prevails.

  • Tsang approaches the material from a rather standard place, but it's a lot darker and weirder than it wants to admit.

  • The breakout star in the cast is Zhou, who with her exquisitely carved Vivien Leigh features and fiery joie de vivre immediately engages you.

  • SoulMate might have a familiar premise, hit some formulaic beats, and have a few pacing issues. But a movie is not just the story it presents, but also how it interweaves all the elements of film...the movie succeeds here in a way few recent films have.

    Feb 6, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • An otherwise average portrait of a friendship is saved by clever editing, strong visuals and fine performances.
