Three different time periods - 1966, 1911, 2005, three stories and the same actor and actress, Shu Qi and Chang Chen, play out the two lead roles, evoking a sentimental tale of three reincarnations of an unfinished love.The film was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival. Three Times was originally meant to be an omnibus collection of short films, with Hou Hsiao-hsien directing only one of the segments. The producers were unable to rustle the financing to be able to hire three directors, so instead, Hou took over production.Roger Ebert, who championed the film at Cannes, gave it four stars in his review for the Chicago Sun-Times: "Three stories about a man and a woman, all three using the same actors. Three years: 1966, 1911, 2005. Three varieties of love: unfulfilled, mercenary, meaningless. All photographed with such visual beauty that watching the movie is like holding your breath so the butterfly won’t stir". This film was voted 2005’s Best Undistributed Film by both The Village Voice's National Critics Poll and Film Comment , and Jim Jarmusch describes " Three Times " as another masterpiece by director Hou Hsiao-Hsien.
