H. G. Castaño’s review published on Letterboxd:
I enjoyed very much this film, of course people will underline its Rohmer (and by metonymy also Hong) dimension - but the homage is so obvious, haven't you noticed that Pascal Greggory is in it?! Actually I find it very positive and courageous that a young Chinese director follows (so well) these models instead of doing the average hand-held-camera pretentious first film. And there are a lot of dimensions that go far beyond from the models, the whole local background, the encounter of the girl from Beijing with a Chinese speaking community in Malaysia, the anthropologist playing the game of the tourist, the many layers in the game of seduction, the myriad of impressions that this film transmits in such a light but precise way. No this is absolutely not a naive film, but the work of someone who understands very well what film art is about.
