I rent this movie because a promotion (pay 2 rents, take 3 movies), And what a surprise. OK, I don't wash to much "Chinise Movies", here in México people are custom to the American Movies, but renting these movie is a great option.
Is about a kid with so much talent (palying a violin) that his father does practically everything to help him become a star, but he is just a kid and plays because his father ask him. The different people that the kid knows and the way his talent is absorbing friends to help him is moving. The music in the movies is splendid, characters and performance of actors are great, and let you understand the way people live in china in the 80's. Contains no violence or aggressive scenes, quiet good scrip.
I don't know a movie that I can compare with this, sorry.
I enjoy the end, despite my friend said wasn't good enough, but if you like music and a familiar movie, this is a must see movie.
