  1. Together is a likely candidate to become that one foreign-language film that jumps out of the art houses each year to become a mainstream phenomenon.
  2. Viewers with a low tolerance for sentiment may balk, but the emotions are so true and the characters so appealing that the film should completely win you over.
  3. Together's mix of classical gems and composer Zhao Lin's plaintive score is stirring, soaring stuff.
  4. If you're in the mood for tears and triumph, with a dash of exoticism, Together may well be the film for you.
  5. 63
    A high tolerance for syrupy melodrama is required in order to enjoy Together.
  6. 50
    Its schmaltzy manipulations are pure 1940s Hollywood. Still, if you can get past the corn, the story exerts a not-unsatisfying emotional pull thanks to Yun's soulful gravity and a tenderness that Chen hasn't shown quite so openly since his 1984 debut, "Yellow Earth."
  7. Torpid, syrupy melodrama from the Chinese director of 1993's "Farewell My Concubine."
