Now fast forward twenty years and one daughter who immigrated to the west, is now a reknown concert conductor who returns to China for a concert with her husband. While there she undertakes a search for her four missing siblings. Will she be able to search the vastness of China? Written by Vaughn Munn

Touching but could be better
1 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

This film is about 4 siblings who got separated during childhood, and the subsequent search for each other nearly 20 years later.

The childhood memories are brilliantly executed. The children are so vivid, lively, innocent and they really bond together like family. For the modern day scenes, I get the impression that the search for the siblings is far too simple. How on earth did David find 2 siblings just out of the blue? I think if there was more portrayal of the process of their search, the film would be more convincing and touching. In addition, I find the characters too emotionally restrained after finally meeting each other. Though this is understandable, as after years of not keeping in touch, it could be a bit awkward, but I would have liked a touching portrayal of the reunions.

Overall, this film is touching and mainly because of the childhood scenes.
