A Compelling Documentary That May Leaped Into Sadness
18 December 2020 | by chenp-54708See all my reviews

"Finding Yingying" is compelling, touching and very emotional. The documentary has many moments that will touch you. No matter if you have a family or not, the film is going to leave you thinking about life, family and the importance of closeness.

It's a small indie film that will most likely be ignored from other films, but it seems that we have gotten a hidden little gem here.
