2.0 out of 5 stars Tres chic, February 17, 2012
This review is from: Snow Flower and the Secret Fan (DVD)
Oops, I meant 'tres chick.' The movie cuts back and forth between pairs of friends centuries apart, one in the time when Chinese women's feet were bound, the other in the current day. Back then, social norms very nearly created segregated worlds for men and women, especially in the upper classes. As a result, friendships between women had a special closeness.

Despite the lovely actresses, especially Bingbing Li, the story came across as inert. I didn't gain insight from comparing the two friendships, and that's really all the movie tried to offer. If you love "relationships" movies, then Snow Flower might suit you. I'm a guy who likes guy movies, though, and this was too chicky for me.

And both male and female -- not only female -- were the victims of the segregation.

Yeah, you're a guy who likes "guy" movies, therefore -- obviously -- you don't like non-guy -- female -- films.

Perhaps you'll catch up to yourself on the point and deal with that, instead of blaming the movie.
