A lovely musical in Chinese film industry
18 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

The reason why the title named: Third Sister Liu is that the girl is from the family of Liu, and she is the third child of the family.

This movie is unique in that it is one of the very few Chinese made movie that is based on the legend of ethnic minority, and in this case, the Zhuang minority in southern and southwestern part of China.

The second reason why this movie is unique is that it is one of the few musicals in Chinese movie industry and musicals are not common in China.
