Tedious though appealing to few
18 August 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

recounts history of China in 1970 Most is accurate and gives some morals Characters r very realistic some aspects very appealing and humorous most appealing to Chinese that lived in the 1970s and experienced the relocation from larger cities Fair, worth watching if one has patience Most of the characters are especially boring and boring some events and reactions of characters r interesting Only watch the movie if u have nothing better to do if you start you must finish the movie The movie may leave you either displeased or nostalgic it may disappoint if you're one of those action thriller seekers this movie does not offer a vicarious experience but a reflection of China's past
