The film grossed $11,050,094 in United States box office, and then went on to significantly overperform in home video market in the United States. The film was chosen as China's entry for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film for the year 2004, but was not nominated in that category; however, it received a nomination for the 2004's Academy Award for Best Cinematography.
