A Beijing professor returns to his stomping grounds for a friend’s funeral. Reflecting on the past, he meets a tea shop owner who sparks feelings of love in a time of pain.
User Reviews: One of the most delicate and intricate movies I have seen in the past few years. The director’s ability to capture human’s vulnerability in such a tender way is remarkable. The movie asks questions about love, death, suicide and human compassion in poetic visual language and austere dialogue.
