Quotes

Hua Mulan: The General Hua you see before you is actually terrified of battle. I had been afraid and hiding all along. But I never thought my fear and hiding would cause the loss of the most important friend in my life. His departure lets me understand fleeing from the endless battles only makes us lose even more!

One of the best films...
23 April 2011 | by hauteclaire5See all my reviews

I first saw the Disney Mulan and thought that it would be something like that. But I met something completely different in a very positive way. There was also no gi jane trying to show the world something, mulan was just a person who grew with the duty and just did what she had to do.

The film left out all the gender conflicts beside and truly presented us a pure touching story.

Hua Mulan being a great general and warrior is after 12 years again a woman of her time at the end. The end of the love story is also sad but otherwise it wouldn't be such a good film.

Hollywood would surely add a kiss at the end, it was much better that there were just the right words...
