Metacritic Score

  • 100

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Like a flowering of talent that has been waiting so long to be celebrated. It is also one of the most touching and moving of the year's films.

  • 90

    The New York Times Elvis Mitchell

    Those unfamiliar with the book will simply appreciate a stirring, many-sided fable, one that is exceptionally well told.

  • 90

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Wang has made a dramatically confident move into the mainstream on his own terms with highly congenial material.
