Suzhou River (Suzhou he)

China 2000

Details imdb

Seen 4 May 2012

How deep is your love?

IMDB 7.4/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience 82% liked it
The opening dialogue itself made me chuckle a bit and that was good start. There are no fast-moving action but this is a love story after all. I give it an 8.0/10 not just for the story line but the understated flow which complements the sparse feel of the whole film.

My impressions:

Is it really love
That drives a man to seek forever
That girl from a past life
Endangering others
Becoming a nuisance

His story seems so far-fetched
Believable maybe
But to most of

How does one reconcile
The two from different backgrounds
They had feelings for each other
That is given
But events after that
Must have changed their minds

It is strange
Or is it to expected
That love can and do
Play a big role
In our lives
