Zhou Yu's Train Movie Review Summary

Actors: Gong-li, Tony Leung Kar-fai

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Zhou Yu's Train

One eventful day, Zhou Yu, a pretty painter from Sanming, took a trip on a train. She met a handsome but shy aspiring poet, Chen Ching. He captivated her with his poem personifying her natural beauty and comparing it with that of a celestial lake.

Soon they fell in love and began their twice weekly passionate affair while commuting to the city of Chongyang.
But a fellow commuter named simply as Zhang, a veterinarian, came in between the two lovebirds, with a secret amorous agenda of his own for Zhou Yu.

But this is more than just a love triangle.

A new woman named Xiu came into the scene. She looked like Zhou Yu. But the scene takes on a different era; a different time period. She is reading the book, "Zhou Yu's Train".
Is Zhou Yu a real person? Is Zhou Yu really was Xiu? Or is Zhou Yu a figment of Xiu's romantic imagination?

Be prepared for a surreal, non-linear movie.
