What was depicted in the movie is more common in China now
8 April 2004 | by zzmaleSee all my reviews

But very unfortunately, it is not the good stuff described in the movie. Instead, what was becoming rampant in China was the "tortured urban life" depicted in the movie.

Due to the recent rapid economic expansion, the urban populations are increasing experiencing what our female protagonists are experienced in the city life, but unlike the protagonists in the movie, the urban population in China has nowhere to escape, not mentioning recovering something they lost, because it is increasingly difficult to find the rural towns depicted in this movie, since urbanization is a growing trend which is irreversible as economy and society develops.
