We gave it a B

From Chinese director Zhang Yimou (”Not One Less,” ”The Road Home”) comes a comedy about love, well-meaning deception, and the collision of the two. Hoping to impress his matchmaker-delivered fiancée, Zhao (Zhao Benshan) spins a web of lies to exaggerate his fortune — then spins another one to console a despondent blind girl. And we’re betting it’s just a matter of time before these story lines intersect.
