The film was very well received in China, Hong Kong in particular. In 2011, the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival listed Comrades: Almost a Love Story at number 16 in their list of "100 Greatest Chinese-Language Films".

If you are 40-50, this movie is a pretty good choice for you, as it can help remind you of past times, people and things.
