The first post:My Blueberry Nights Review

Reprinted from December 21,2007.

Synopsis:"A beautiful young woman on the treacherous road to love."

"My Blueberry Nights" is the new film from one of the world's most
sought-after directors, Wong Kar Wai. It's a magnificent love story
starring multi-Grammy award winner Norah Jones in her movie debut
along with a "A-list" cast of Academy Award winners and nominees
including Jude Law, David Strathairn, Rachel Weisz and Natalie Portman.

Norah Jones plays a sensual, alluring young woman who sets out on an
unforgettable journey of discovery in pursuit of true love. In
heartbreakingly beautiful locations and classic Route 66 atmospheric
diners, Wong Kar Wai's captivating heroine encounters a series of
enigmatic characters that help her on her quest.

Set against New York's magical cityscape and the stunning vistas of
America's legendary Route 66, the celebrated director's first English
language picture embraces his signature elegance and originality that
made "Happy Together," "In the Mood for Love" and "2046" must-see
movies all around the world.

Wong Kar Wai's unique talent and dreamy romantic themes, combined with
mythical Americans locations and an awesomely gifted and stylish cast,
guarantee that "My Blueberry Nights" will delight and enchant
moviegoers everywhere."

To be honest,i have not seen any of the previous movies of Wong Kar
Wai.I have heard positive comments about In the mood for
love,2046,especiall y about the music,among other things,but i have not
seen any of these movies.Anyway, when i first read about MBN it
provoked my interest.When i saw the trailer the expectation was even
greater.I finally saw MBN last weekend.

The journey of Elizabeth (Norah Jones) is an existential journey
across America,a journey of redemption.An effort to distance herself
from the sad reality in NY,an effort of thinking things over.She
encounters people who have their own problems.The element that these
stories have in common is:when you have something or it is available
for you to have it,you may ignore it or take it for granted.When you
lose it,you appreciate it,you realize what it meant for you.These
encounters are an important part of the movie,of Elizabeth's
journey.Important is also the relationship between Elizabeth and
Jeremy (Jude Law),the restaurant owner back in NY,with whom she stays
in touch through letters that she sends.Wong Kar Wai describes MBN as
"a story of a woman who takes the long route instead of the short one
to meet up with the man she loves."

Norah Jones in her first role is very good and the rest of the cast
also delivers exceptional perfomances. The music is just stunning (Cat
Power's "the Greatest" is a superb song). The visual perspective of
the movie is also stunning.

My Blueberry Nights is a movie that delivers meaning for the
characters,that delivers meaning for the audience.Definetely worth
My Blueberry Nights was the opening film for the 2007 Cannes Film
Festival on May 16, 2007.
