Storyline

Touching Starlight is a true story about a young girl, Chen Wei, an aspiring dancer whose hopes and dreams for the future are dashed when her leg is amputated due to cancer. To encourage others to overcome their handicaps and to live successful and productive lives, Chen Wei starts a local radio talk program, "Starlight," which also works to address the acceptance of the handicapped by the community at large. Unfortunately, though the radio program proves to be immensely popular due to her hard work and the tireless support of her numerous friends, Chen Wei is forced to leave when it's learned that her cancer has spread, becoming terminal.

good for low budget film
21 December 2005 | by paulwilliams95See all my reviews

It is almost impossible to find this film in the United States but if you can it is worth the trouble as it is better than most Hollywood productions even though it was made on a small budget. It is the true story of a Chinese dancer who looses a leg to cancer and becomes a radio talk show host for the disabled. This is the first film for Zhang Ziyi who later starred in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, House of Flying Daggers, and Memoirs of a Geisha. Her acting abilities weren't the greatest as she made this film at sixteen or so. She was chosen for it because she had trained in dance before getting into acting. But the film is still touching for such a low budget movie. See it if you can find it.
