Super simple yet super effective and entertaining
Very heartwarming and pure throughout. Touches beautifully on family dynamics and grief during such a difficult period and transition. The humor in this film works perfectly and helps to balance out the dark reality of the storyline. The cast here does an incredible job, especially Awkwafina and Shuzhen whose relationship is full of love and laughter and is portrayed perfectly in the film.
The cinematography and direction really helped to compliment the story. However I can't help but want more from this film and its message. At times I wanted it to go further and explore more.
“Now I’m yours. For ever and ever”
WOW. I can’t stop thinking about this film. A really incredible and transformative depiction of obsessive, intense, yet at times distant love. Each shot is a masterpiece, each movement is strategical and crucial. The camera becomes a character in Cold War, one that sees everything and is brutally honest.
The music is beautiful placed and compliments the story and direction perfectly. Both actors are impeccable and convey so much emotion. I could watch this over and over again. My only critique is that I wish it was longer.
“Time doesn’t matter when you’re in love”
