Audience Reviews for Yun shui yao (The Knot)
A 2006 film, instead of a 1999 one as shown. Way better than expected indeed- at least with some decent acting, plus an all right storyline (despite quite corny). The frequent fade-out editing makes the film looks rather disjointed however.
If you'r not Chinese, you might not like it. If you are Chinese, whom don't know your own history...you might not like it.
camerawork is excellent, some photographic stills are breathtaking, but overall the plot structure is derivative, remniscent of Yi Jiang Chun Shui Xiang Dong Liu in the 1940s, Umbrellas of Chersbourg in the 1960s, the recent Tai Wan Wang Shi, and a lot of others. Changing identity into another woman is to cater to the man's desire. Feminist will not favor this film for sure, because it lacks the rich textuality of the similar subject matter as that in Vertigo.
