Brought me to hyper space!
27 September 2009 | by Credo_Quia_AbsurdumSee all my reviews

Adults are very tall. They are so tall that their sight tends to loose itself to the distance because almost nothing is higher than them. Children, however, are smaller and thus they do not see as far as the adults do. But they see what is near them. Adults see large, gigantic things ahead of them. Children see the smallest things. Children live in the present tense. Adults look towards the future. Children see the world differently. And this is what Orz Boyz is all about. Seeing things differently. Through the eyes of the children we once were. These kids, through the little things they care for, do not see this overwhelming world full of poverty and misery they live in.

Through brilliant acting by the kids and supporting adult actors, through its greatly polished cinematography ( like most movies from China ) and inspiring music, Orz Boyz is able to capture the essence of childhood friendship. Sometimes it is very realistic and in the next scene it jumps to surrealism and it even has some animation here and there as well. This creates a wonderful film that reminds me of the magic behind other children related stories such as St-Exupéry's "The Little Prince". Very entertaining, charming and surprising movie. It breaks the barriers of language in so many ways. This is a must see for anyone who is looking towards discovering a part of China that is rarely seen in the medias - its highly artistic side, that is.
