was pretty boring actually. but hsuchi was pretty darn hot as a gothrockchick though, in the third, last, and least boring story of the three stories. i was a bit disturbed by the non-chronological arrangement of the three times (eras) for one. the first story was of old times, then the second story of even older times, and the third story of the now. so i was quite uncomfortable with this strange structural arrangement. i couldn't locate the parallels or similarities in the three stories too, except perhaps that all three stories were about love, and that the lead characters in all three stories were hsuchi and changchern. but i liked the extensive use of long takes though. im a fan of long takes, slow dollies, long monologues, long VO narration. (warning:spoilers) the second story of even older times left me with a major "HUH?". their dialogues were depicted visually in text rather than in real aural sound, which i was very uncomfortable with. made me wonder if it was really intended that way, or if it was to cover up some errors made in production. hsuchi lip syncing to some olden chinese song was very unconvincing for me too. that image made me laugh more than anything else. in terms of styling, neither hsuchi nor changchern looked, to me, like they were real people belonging to this older era. i might have cast reneliu instead of hsuchi, but then again, she prob wouldn't be as hot as hsuchi as a gothrockchick, and she might look too old in the first story as a cutebilliardchick. ahwell.
