"For anyone who missed the screening of 'Jasmine Women' at the recent
Shanghai International Film Festival, all is not lost. "
"The movies brings together many Chinese stars, including Zhang Ziyi
and Joan Chen, and the title actually encompasses the three female
characters Mo, Li and Hua which together are directly translated to
the Chinese word for "jasmine.""
"the three women are quite different from each other despite all
experiencing tragic lives. 'Mo is naive and pure and prone to getting
hurt,' ... 'She always lives in her dreams. Li, on the other hand,
tries to design and plan her life, but it still leads to tragedy. Hua
is the most confident woman of the three and she has many ideas. '"
