I guess my challange is to try to understand why there are so many people who fell in love with this movie. No plot, meaningless scenes (Cambodia scenes), slow, and a stupid ending. I can't resist but ask the questions: is it the I guess my challange is to try to understand why there are so many people who fell in love with this movie. No plot, meaningless scenes (Cambodia scenes), slow, and a stupid ending. I can't resist but ask the questions: is it the romantic music that made people love this movie? or do they just think that they're supposed to love this movie like we were told to find the "Mona Lisa smile" amazing?

in the mood for bore, nothing happens in this movie, the director uses slow motion in a scene buyind noodles, is pointless, is an exercise in empty style, emptiness is the theme here, i think people think this movie is art because they don'tin the mood for bore, nothing happens in this movie, the director uses slow motion in a scene buyind noodles, is pointless, is an exercise in empty style, emptiness is the theme here, i think people think this movie is art because they don't understand what true cinema is, is about emotions, technique, story, acting, music, this movie fails in all categories, half of the movie is spent showing the protagonist ass in different dresses, shots of a clock in a wall (why?) nothing means anything in this movie, is just stylish for the sake of being stylish but with no context, its repetitive, boring ant should appeal only for people that think they know art but clearly don't have a clue, like the director of this movie, it sucks hard Expand

The movie is very slow moving and I assumed the pace would increase but, sadly, I was wrong. Nothing much really happens. The music gets very irritating. I think anyone could have played the roles of the main characters. The only praise IThe movie is very slow moving and I assumed the pace would increase but, sadly, I was wrong. Nothing much really happens. The music gets very irritating. I think anyone could have played the roles of the main characters. The only praise I have is that it is quite artistic. I am somewhat perplexed as to why so many people adore this film. Expand

Je viens de regarder ce film et j'ai l'impression de sortir du coma. J'ai pas tout regardé à vitesse nominale mais j'ai tenu une demi-heure ainsi, ce que je considère comme un magnifique exploit. Je pensais alors que ça faisait au moins deuxJe viens de regarder ce film et j'ai l'impression de sortir du coma. J'ai pas tout regardé à vitesse nominale mais j'ai tenu une demi-heure ainsi, ce que je considère comme un magnifique exploit. Je pensais alors que ça faisait au moins deux heures et quelque que je regardais l'air ahuri ce cinéma d'auteur du festival de Cannes et que le générique de fin libérateur allait me délivrer.

Libera me domine ! mais non, le temps du cinéma d'auteur qu'il soit chinois, javanais, français ou indo-pakistanais s'écoule infiniment plus lentement et chaque minute contemplée de ce film abrutissant, des tas de neurones meurent en masse. Car la connerie tue.

Ne pas s'étonner alors si les peigne-culs des festivals suivis par la presse intello-bobo en mettent partout après, se gargarisant, pontifiant et idolâtrant à tout va les archi-méga-grosses merdes de ce genre.

Peu importe les comédiens dans ce cinéma de l'abrutissement, aucun ou aucune ne serait en mesure de sauver une telle affliction : pensez donc, dans le Hongkong des années 60, deux cocus qui habitent dans des cagibis se tournent autour et tentent de se renifler discrètement le fion sans jamais y parvenir.

Une heure trois quarts de ça. Tu le crois ça ? non mais putain ça troue le cul !
