 Zhou Yu's Train (Zhou Yu de huo che) (2002): Li Gong, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Honglei Sun - PopMatters Film Review
As Zhou Yu, Li Gong, the ageless star of so many of Zhang Yimou's pictures before he turned to profitable martial arts action, embodies a yearning that is simultaneously timeless and frozen in time, delicate and determined, vibrant and unbearable.
At one level, Zhou Yu is a familiar figure, a young woman dreaming her way out of her dreary day job (she's a painter at a Sanming porcelain factory), yearning for love and commitment from her poet-librarian boyfriend, Chen Qing (Tony Leung Ka Fai), who lives and works in Chongyang.
In her present, which is also the film's past, Zhou Yu's choices seem clearly marked: the uncommitted ephemera embodied by the poet or the visceral connection offered by the earnest animal doctor.

 calendarlive.com: MOVIE REVIEW - 'Zhou Yu's Train'
Zhou is swept away by Chen's poetry and his love-making, but he's actually quite reticent and uncommitted, and as the film progresses and its plot develops the question arises as to whether or not she has fallen in love with a phantom.
Zhou rebuffs his advances, but he persists and she remains intrigued by this witty and intelligent man. The question then becomes whether it will ever be possible for Zhang to compete with the ethereal Chen.
Not until the end, however, does it become clear that occasional shots of a contemplative Gong in a short hairstyle do not represent Zhou Yu looking back on the past and that she is in fact playing another character, Xiu, who has been observing Zhou all along and becomes susceptible to the charismatic Chen.
