Light and romantic…
This film is about a young American lawyer whose employers send him to Shanghai to represent the firm in China.
There are at least three intertwining plots. Of these, the most touching and sweet romance occurs between two Chinese people.
There are several important characters. Of these, the most forceful is not a person, but a city: Shanghai, with its Chinese culture and lightning-fast business environment.
The story is simple: the old fish-out-of-water struggles of a confident person struggling in a new environment. The viewer doesn’t learn much about the backgrounds of the two romantic leads who can speak fluent English to each other. It doesn’t matter, because they are both adrift and recognize each other as they drift. That process is romantic.
Daniel Henney is so attractive, its hard to imagine that he would not already be a serious relationship back in the States. The same could be said of Eliza Coupe, whom he meets his first day in Shanghai.
Hijinks ensue, but the subdued kind. The Chinese kind. Romance ensues, but the subdued kind. The Chinese and American kind.
Worth watching, more than once.
True, laughable and touching
Let me introduce myself quickly. I grew up in Beijing, graduated from the best University. I “relocated” to Texas in my late 20s, not far from San Antonio. As an immigrant who have struggled every single day, I can say I love every line of the movie.They were so true, laughable and touching.
When I was in Beijing during my adolescence, I used to know some “expats” , called “Lao Wai”. They were often grumbling about Chinese laws and business, making fun of Chinese ladies for “cheap”, making comments on Chinese who tried to be friend with them, saying they were “English learner, not real friends”. After watching this movie, I eventually understand what those “Lao Wai” were talking about.
It was distrust. Those expats can’t trust the law, the ladies, and friends. And it is same here. I want to get along with American people, but different culture just raised the cost of trusting people no matter how hard you try.
Fang Fang was a flirty young beauty. So true. I ‘d say that she was the epitome of China in the last century—-poor, beautiful,trying so hard in every possible way to get connected to the world’s front edge.
Eventually we learned that flirting was her way to exchange for help, not “taking me to New York”as Sam said. To be honest, Chinese young ladies nowadays are much more anti-marriage.
Awesome Wang is both street-smart and supportive for public justice, which rarely exist in the same person. Awesome Wang is a real eccentric, though truly awesome.
The man who preached to Sam about the pit was another excellent case of cultural shock. There are many men wearing robes in China. The love to preach to any strangers randomly. They are not monks and they do not take donations. Donating publicly is actually a very negative thing because the recipient would be considered as money-minded and hypocrisy. I know it is different in America. Everyday I feel seized at the neck when I see donation requests in supermarket till and daycare email.
