since it's quite long i watched it in 3 sittings over about a month, so i feel involved in the story. brilliant joke on the way goverments run in all countries actually, not just in china. the cinematograpghy was great. the places where it was shot were lovely and the square/round frame made it feel more intimate. i enjoyed watching it change. the soundtrack caught me by suprise so many times. in a good way though.
