Hui captures the romantic aura of Xiao's freethinking audacity and artistic vocation in poised, painterly shots that seem less like sites of action than like elusive memories.Los Angeles TimesOctober 16, 2014
Though it hasn't the sweep to be greater than the sum of its parts, the movie offers an absorbing mix of melodrama and historical detail.New York TimesOctober 16, 2014
Overlong and too reverent, conveying little sense of Xiao Hong the person and even less of her talent.NPROctober 16, 2014
Beautifully made and deftly performed ...The PlaylistOctober 25, 2014
