Chinese arthouse being Chinese arthouse. It looks quite nice compared to Jia's films and the actors do a good job, but the film is rather one-note and the 4-hour running time is extremely hard to defend. If sluggish Chinese poverty porn is your thing that this film is a dream, otherwise it's sure to get on your nerves, regardless of its technical qualities.
