||Synopsis: In 19th-century China, seven year old girls Snow Flower and Lily are matched as laotong - or "old sames" - bound together for eternity. Isolated by their families, they furtively communicate by taking turns writing in a secret language, nu shu, between the folds of a white silk fan. In a parallel story in present day Shanghai, the laotong's descendants, Nina and Sophia, struggle to maintain the intimacy of their own childhood friendship in the face of demanding careers, complicated love lives, and a relentlessly evolving Shanghai. Drawing on the lessons of the past, the two modern women must understand the story of their ancestral connection, hidden from them in the folds of the antique white silk fan, or risk losing one another forever.

Watch Snow Flower and the Secret Fan - Alternative Versions.
I finished reading all the previous reviews to have a clear idea about
what other people saw in this movie, and I must say that all that
emphasis about the film being too different from the book doesn't show
a great understanding of the cinematic technique. A movie is not a
book. The visual, with long shots and close ups, the dialogue and the
music, even the noises, take over all the written pages to express a
single gesture, the full description of a landscape, or the design of a
dress. A single close up can give us the essence of a full chapter.
This movie is sheer poetry.
Forget about the original book that helped to create this jewel of a
movie, just watch this film, allow your senses to be absorbed by the
two parallel stories --the contemporary and the historical-- and just
absorb all that beauty offered to you in the story-line, the exquisite
photography, the delicacy of sentiments expressed by these women (it is
a terrible film for men's egos, because we come a very poor second
compared with those women, overpowered by men's brutality and yet
transcending the horrible handicaps imposed on them, like the tiding of
their feet from early age, to convert them into defenseless crippled
creatures, totally depending on men, and their virtual slaves for
The image of those bounded stomps, deformed to the point of becoming
unrecognizable as human feet symbolizes too the humiliation some
ultraconservative elements of society try to impose over minorities as
if to say: "There, you'll go thru life bounded and suffering, freedom
to be yourself will be denied to you because I want it so".
The total love among these "Sisters for life" was infinitely superior
to the love these women could have had for their husbands. We see that
in both cases --the historic and the contemporary-- and in both cases
it lasted, strong, to the last consequences.
Contrary to other viewers, I didn't have the slightest problem in
following the development of the two parallel stories, since it was
done in a very natural, simple and honest way; both stories superbly
intertwined to perfection till the final resolution.
¿A masterpiece? yes, I think so.
