Sff 2015: Dearest Review

7 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Peter Chan.

Cast: Bo Huang, Lei Hao, Wei Zhao, Dawei Tong, Yi Zhang, Guoqiang Zhang.

Certificate: N/A

Running Time: 128 minutes

Synopsis: A separated couple search for their missing son who was abducted in 2009.

Starting in 2009, Dearest tells a familiar tale in the realm of cinema, but it is a striking one that is international in its language; that of a missing child. Peter Chan’s powerful film may be shot and presented as a drama, but it has all the tension and suspense of a bonafide thriller. It’s this that makes it one the most emotional films of recent years, not in that it causes the tears to come streaming, but it makes you feel hatred, anger, remorse, and sympathy throughout its running time.

The screenplay, by Ji Zhang, is a rich and multilayered effort that swoops throughout the lives of the main characters, and even switches »
