What are critics saying?


Chicago Tribune by

Wong Kar-wai made a much more dynamic film, "Happy Together," five years ago. Lan Yu suffers by comparison.


Film Threat by Chris Gore

This delicately observed story, deeply felt and masterfully stylized, is a triumph for its maverick director.


The New York Times by Dana Stevens

Lan Yu is like a less dizzily gorgeous companion to Mr. Wong's "In the Mood for Love" -- very much a Hong Kong movie despite its mainland setting.


New York Daily News by Jami Bernard

With its scenes of full-frontal nudity and its references to the Tiananmen Square protests, Lan Yu may be a breakthrough film for China, but it's well-trod territory for American viewers.


The A.V. Club by Scott Tobias

The connection between Hu and Liu seems more scripted than real, founded on musty allegorical clichés about innocent country folk and corrupt city slickers.


Philadelphia Inquirer by Steven Rea

It's not often that Chinese cinema tackles same-sex relationships, and rarer still to see a film of such stark, muted emotion coming from mainland China.
