Alcoholism in China
16 June 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie is almost like a documentary. The camera seems to follow the protagonists and the whole movie appears realistic and believable to the viewer. For me it was quite interesting to see how day to day life of people in China looks like, it gives you insights into their apartments, what they do, etc. But on the other hand I must admit that I didn't find the story too compelling. A family that slowly breaks apart due to the father's drinking problems... there's nothing too special about that and the movie doesn't produce any extra moral or emotional impact or anything that would set this movie apart from other works. Therefore I would only recommend this movie to viewers that are interested in Chinese culture as a documentary- if you are up to see a rewarding drama check elsewhere.
