Comments: There was a Karen Mok sighting earlier this week in another thread so I watched this in her honor. It's a very good looking/shot film with a bunch of psychoanalytical jargon. It could've scored higher but the big twisty resolve/reveal at the end swung in like a wet noodle. It wasn't interesting, just possible. And it was not in the same key as the rest of the film. I still recommend it.

Summary: The famous psychologist Xu Ruining has a raising career, when he met the troublesome patient Ren Xiaoyan. The meeting is not easy as feeble-looking Ren is point by point against him.
