The only thing that Li Shaohong's shattering new film has in common with last year's Baober in Love is that both star the extraordinary Zhou Xun. This time she plays Yan-ni, a young woman raised in Beijing by relatives, deeply alienated from her parents, generally sullen and withdrawn. The first spark of hope enters her life when she's offered a university place to read chemistry, but (as she informs us in her hauntingly placid, self-recriminatory voice-over) her ruination begins the day she moves into the college dorm. That's when a near-accident on the road brings her into contact with Muyu (Wu Jun, also brilliant), who drives a delivery truck and is the first person ever to take a shine to her. Before long, they're dating. Then she gets pregnant, drops out of college and moves into a dingy room in Beijing's 'underground city' with her lover - who, she belatedly learns, has never been quite honest with her...
