  1. It's a terrific film because each of the characters is so fiercely felt.

    If Zhou Yu’s Train is finally no more than whimsy, it’s classy, delicate whimsy, a testament to the way romantic love, however unsatisfied, continues to drive itself.
  3. 50
    An empty lake, drained of any tangible substance and refilled with wispy, pseudo-poetic metaphor.
  4. Sadly, the combination of gauzy photography and cheesy music gives the film the aura of a fragrance commercial.

    Before dismissing Zhou Yu's Train as the over-conceived, over-edited, under-written perfume ad that it is, the following must be said: It's great to see Gong Li onscreen again.
  6. Less a tale of mysterious, tragic love than a three-way Harlequin romance.
