Made in 2008 and released in 2009 this is one of those films that are guaranteed to leave not a dry eye in the house. It is about a young boy called LU who has been orphaned but a poor bamboo farmer, Chen, takes him in and uses him as a helping hand in his run down house.
Then one day they spot a mother panda with two twin cubs and both are fascinated by the beautiful creatures. However, Chen is a bit short on cash and he knows a man who will pay handsomely for a live baby panda – and you can guess what happens next.
This is an amazing film and they used real pandas. This has drama, heartbreak, love and a nice eco massage too. I was moved to tears on one occasion it was so gut wrenching but I simply enjoyed this as if I were a child. Hopefully films like this will help in spreading the message of how important it is to stop these wonderful animals from becoming extinct. It is in Mandarin and the sub titles are good, this is for those who still have an inner child and need to let it out once in a while or just if you like well made films.
