SNOW FLOWER AND THE SECRET FAN represents one of Wang's best films to date....The heart of the movie is about female loyalty and love that knows no bounds.

Rating: 1.5/4 -- Although it looks fantastic, it barely registers on an emotional level because it feels so dull and manipulative. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- It's a well shot film with beautiful cinematography, though it does feel a bit too constrained at times. But as beautiful as it was, the story and characters failed to grab me Full Review

Product Description:

The descendants of two 19th century spiritual sisters struggle to maintain their enduring bond by exploring their ancestral connection in modern-day Shanghai. Connected as "laotong" (old sames) at the tender age of seven, Snow Flower and Lily grow up in isolation and develop a language all their own. In the folds of a white silk fan, they exchange furtive messages that only they can decipher. Meanwhile, in 21st century China, Flower's and Lily's descendants Nina and Sophia find the growing demands of their respective careers and their complicated love lives threatening to drive them apart. Only by focusing on the timeless messages hidden between the folds of that cherished fan will Nina and Sophia find the secrets to keeping their friendship alive, and avoid letting the demands of modern living shatter an ancient bond of friendship. SNOW FLOWER AND THE SECRET FAN was adapted from author Lisa See's best-selling novel of the same name.
