After ten years in Hong Kong, a girl returns for a visit to her native village on the mainland. Cue for a familiar clash between nostalgia and necessity, busy fleshpots and rustic backwaters, the 'free' and the Communist worlds. But effortlessly confounding expectations, Yim Ho's film sidesteps all the pitfalls with grace, wit and even touches of quaint fantasy. A real charmer.
