  • Wong kar wai's has written and directed the film with a lot of heart and it shows with his treatment of scenes - special!
  • The fictitious thread is an intelligent work and how the truth ties up with the writing of the protagonist shows the smartness of the maker all the way.
  • The role of the writer, played by Tony Leung Chiu Wai creates a significant impact and his stints with Wang & Su please.
  • The Opera-type music combines perfectly with the trade mark slow-motion sequences & create a visual treat!
  • Switching back and forth, the similar Chinese names and faces actually confuse in a film that's already a bit complex!
Another Creative piece from Wong!
