Underrated
15 July 2020 | by pauliewalnuts-49356See all my reviews

I think the rating is a bit low for this film... From the backwards peasant village,to the major city in chonqing,to the "bright lights" of London...was there any difference from either of these locations? All were dreary,following a young girl who,when you look at it just wanted to be loved and love someone herself. I think the lead actress was absolutely superb and there are some truly heartbreaking moments in this film,especially noticing how in one way or the other every Male she meets abuses her in some way or the other... I personally really enjoyed this film,in a depressing way albeit,and I would highly recommend people to watch it,I always believe a good film should stir emotion in you,this certainly did in me especially making me teary eyed over the depressing ending...
