Only eight people wrote reviews, so i am writing one myself since it is an excellent film to watch.
i watched it on DVD, for some reason, it was too dark throughout the film. I don't know if it is due to the film they used or if they intentionally made it looking so blurry all the time. and the film size is not even full size.
It is a pity that it is a wonderful film, but due to the low DVD quality, it decreases the overall enjoyment.
This film reminds me of "death on the nile". several people got put into a confined place, and one of them is the suspect.
i don't know if this really happened or not, i truly enjoyed it.
Also, I am sure that if the Chinese communist party is not in charge of all films made in mainland china, this film could be more interesting. it still has the undertone to praise how brave the communist workers are. some of the names could be different, such as "communist bandits" instead of "communist party members", etc.
There could be more interesting films made by Chinese filmmakers if the communist party gives up its firm grip of the film producing industry.
Maybe someday Hollywood could also make one just like this one.
