    A subtly comic, ultimately moving film about modern adult relationships.
  2. 86
    A superb, wise, and witty Taiwanese film about being single and what to do about it.
  3. Director Chen Kuo-fu adds a refreshingly wry humor to this view and then deftly throws in some wrenching moments and an ultimately astounding final twist.
  4. Liu is dazzling as the heroine, and the movie as a whole strikes a lovely balance between comedy and compassion.
  5. 70
    The repetitious structure begins to grow wearing about two-thirds through, but the conclusion has an emotional wallop that justifies the wait.
  6. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    Each scene is beautifully written and exquisitely shot, and the sum total is an unusually perceptive picture of urban loneliness.
  7. 60
    An intelligent, perceptive film. It's good enough to make you wish Chen hadn't sacrificed emotional complexity for a last-minute surprise.
