A Really Nice Watch About Real People,
This review is from: Shun Li & The Poet [DVD] (DVD)
This is a charming film even if it is a little slow. Stick with it as it's worth it. The film is about those who lose people who are close to them and then find some solace quite out of the blue. The friendship is purely platonic but not everyone sees it that way unfortunately!
The film is shot in Venice with as you can imagine some very nice scenery. It portrays the lifestyles of the modest fisherman who work there and who meet regularly in a café where Shun Li is asked to work by her Chinese connections.
There are many unanswered questions here which you ask yourself at the conclusion of the film? I feel that's always a good indication that the film has got you where it wants you? The film is not as simple as it may seem!
