Wonderful Chinese film in style of Yasujiro Ozu
9 June 2002 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

The movie tells beautifully about life of a Chinese family and about the anxiety of living in small place. The original English name of the movie is "A tree in house" which symbols beautifully the family living in the small house. The style of the movie reminds me about early Japanese movies of Yasujiro Ozu, it's rather silent and mind soothing story telling really touched me. Indeed, very good film. Pity that it didn't get attention what it deserved.
