Movie Info

Utilising a fascinating narrative formula that shifts between the present and the past, "Goddess of Mercy" tells the story of a female police officer whose life is turned upside down when she becomes involved with a handsome young man who is a drug smuggler. Walking the tightrope between commercial and art cinema, "Goddess of Mercy" is a surprisingly complex film.

Audience Reviews for Goddess of Mercy (Yu guanyin)

I guess the people who don't like this movie should stick with genre flicks, so they aren't confused when something doesn't fall neatly in to a category. If you want something conventional, Hollywood has a million genre flicks, please take your pick, they all follow a formula called "The Beat Structure", which will keep your delicate sensibilities neatly placated. For the rest of you, who seek something different, give this film a shot. By the way, EVERYBODY doesn't die. It helps if you watch a movie to the end. If I sound pissed off, it's because I just read some of the "reviews" of this film.
