Very well done and artistic movie
5 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since there were no other reviews I decided to add one

First off even though Sammo Hung is in this movie there are no martial arts or fight scenes in this movie at all. So if you're watching this movie only for action then you should see one of his other movies. If you enjoy artistic and visually capturing movies however you should definitely watch this

Sammo plays 'Slim' who goes to visit his family in China after 16 yrs of almost no contact with them since moving to the US. There he meets one of his cousins (Sylvia Chang) whom he was close with during childhood who travels with him to meet his family and the story progresses from there. The movie has some excellent visuals of the countryside in China as well as good music and very good acting. If you like well done movies then you should check it out
