Perhaps the world [Yinan] creates is a bit too scattered for its own good, but you will still want to melt inside its stunning, riotous glow.

As with most films of this type, the pleasures arrive less in the originality of the story than in the way the way it's told.

Diao is a master of both settings and set-pieces. Unfortunately, the characters and plot twists are much less compelling.
