Moral tale. Realized very tactfully. A pleasure to watch
3 September 2000 | by bdeboniSee all my reviews

Moral tale of a son from a poor family working hard to carry out his studies in a remote Chinese countryside with hints at his efforts and difficulty at reconciling ancient ideas (marrying out the sister to pay the son's studies) with contemporary values (more equality and justice) with no reference (at least from a non-Chinese speaker pont of view) at the Party and melodramatic music under-scoring the capital events of the plot. Beautiful shots and a lot of tact in the realization (at least more than the synopsis would let one to expect) and a pleasure to watch.
