Gong Li, the female icon of modern Chinese cinema, teams up again with Sun Zhou, following their collaboration on the moving, and awardwinning drama Breaking the Silence. She gives a stupendous performance in possibly the most sensual role of her career, as a woman caught between two lovers, and two dimensions of desire. Zhou Yu, a ceramic artisan in China's rural Northwest, has a deep rapport with Chen Qing, a shy, sensitive poet. Taking a long train ride every weekend just to make mad passionate love with him, her longing seems insatiable. Until one day, she meets the hedonistic vet Zhang Qiang, and begins a torrid affair, which takes her to another train station, and another level of lust.

Take The Train
ZHOU YU\'S TRAIN is the type of film that may -- just may -- require repeat viewing in order to take in all the thia story has to offer: if you blink -- much like the effect of the quickly passing scenery out the window of any train -- you might miss something better explored, as the ending of this evenly-paced romance shows.

While one could hardly argue with the notion that there are parts of TRAIN that appear uneven and, at least, forced, the film still manages to deliver a perspective worth a single view: Zhou Yu falls in love with a poet she must take the train to see, but, aboard the train, she finds herself somewhat distracted by a veterinarian who insists -- despites her mild protests -- on pursuing her affections. As a result, TRAIN explores more than one budding relationship and can be confusing on more than one occasion. In fact, one could make the argument that what truly is transpiring here cannot be fully appreciated until the film\'s final few moments, and, even then, the viewer may be left with many unanswered questions. However, what is clear is Zhou\'s desire to seek the answers to questions of the various loves in her life (two men, friendship, art, etc.), and the narrative clearly appears to be a device through which an exploration of the female mind and heart is undertaken. Whether you reach a destination is entirely up to the viewr.

Of course, the best scenery is, indeed, Gong Li. If you\'re a fan of her work, then TRAIN is definitely for you.
