What a dissapointment. One of the worst romantic movies I have recently seen. The book was excellent, but making a movie out of it must be more than shooting the same set of event in order. As it tuns out, the movie has become a collection of many cliche scenes, following one after the other in a franctic manner, such that the viewer is unable to tase any reality in it. Diane Lane is one of my favourite drama actresses, and she was the only reason I wathced the movie until the end.
I found the first story (played by Olgun Simsek) much better compared to the second one. What do others think ?
Veyr neatly shot scenes in conjunction with a solid story line. Gets into the viewers head and you soon realize that good and bad, love and hate, yin and yang in human nature are very much intermixed.
My two favorite scenes from this movie are:
The awkward first murder of our school boys and girls, except the Tang Wei character who has already sacrificed herself before the others, which she did once more at the end of the movie.
The epic scenery of the coal mine just before our gang of naive spies got lined up to be shot.
Very nice movie with superb acting from the cast. The director made a good job of producing tangible characters in the middle of political, religious and personal turmoil.
