  1. 100
    An exquisite love story directed with admirable subtlety and sensitivity.
  2. 80
    The kind of old-fashioned, grown-up weepie in which the hearts of men and women are cracked, and the shards flutter through the story. Its directness is the movie equivalent of hot, fresh popcorn.
  3. If this all sounds masochistic, it most certainly is. But the filmmakers have rendered it with such grace and subtlety that the spectacle of three very intelligent people ruining each other's lives becomes irresistibly romantic.
  4. 60
    That decade-spanning finale allows the three leads to age onscreen and demonstrate their impressive range, particularly Liu.
  5. Reviewed by: Chris Gore
    60
    Celebrated actor Lin Chung, whose voice seems to articulate something within himself.
  6. The story is hardly original, but this well-directed Taiwanese drama paints an intermittently vivid portrait of life on the Chinese mainland in the 1930s era.
  7. Reviewed by: Derek Elley
    10
    An embarrassing failure at almost every level.
