A beautiful and moving story
14 January 2010 | by john-5515See all my reviews

This film is visually beautiful. I hope there is a part of China that will always look like this but I worry that will not be the case. I suspect that there was some considerable work done to remove more modern items from the villages but no matter.

The story is fairly simplistic but that doesn't stop it being an emotional film. Many good stories are not necessarily complicated. One could argue that the events are not subtle enough in how they tell the underlying story but I think that would be a wasted opportunity to ponder the messages of the film.

I thoroughly recommend this film. It is a quiet film with a relaxed but not tiring pace.

I hope you enjoy this film as much as I did.

Looking at the statistics of the voting on this film shows that people between 32-40 enjoyed this film the most and women more then men. So I think you need some maturity to really enjoy this film or perhaps some patience :)
