Tender, Moving Love Story
25 October 2014 | by manuelteixeiraaSee all my reviews

Zhang yimou done it again. And Gong Li is more than ever - one of her best roles...i'm always hoping that she does more movies. And when Yimou and Gong Li work together it always comes an amazing movie. I wish they could go on professionaly together."Coming Home": It is a simple story, yet with powerful meanings. Everything is beautiful: the performances, the direction, the photography, the music... And that piano scene... Achingly. Every yimou's movies has such sensibility. He really knows how to touch.

Thank you Gong Li and Zhang Yimou.

An applause too for the male actor and the girl who played the daughter - hope she will get a great career.
