A short poetic journey that dragged on...
25 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

If you do not like things to be dragged on abit then this movie might not be for you. I am by no means an adrenaline junkie and quite like quiet movies, but I can't help but feel bored at time with this film. The movie however had great cinematography, good set designs & costumes and a soundtrack that's light and enjoyable. This is not a movie where it made detail accounts of the battle of Chang Ping, a pivotal battle during the late Warring State period of China that more then probably determined and marked the beginning of the unification of China. But you are not going to get that from here. This movie is a small sketch of the lives of "minor" Characters before, during, and after the battle. On a personal note, I was put off by some of the exaggerated acting that didn't add anything to the movie but distracted. Seven Samurai influence can definitively be sniffed out but the film did not manage to fully maximize the potential of the premise of the story. However, if you like minimalistic films, great cinematography, or Chinese period movies in general then by means give it a go. This is a short poem of a film that could have had some revision to give maximum impact, something epic with the "few" and the "small".
