Well done positive film
21 November 2016 | by girlwithpearlSee all my reviews

This film is about three Taiwan "aborigen" village boys, living in the middle of mountains and forests. They live happy life, even when each has family worries - father's alco-problem, mother who has abandoned when small etc. Still - their natural optimism, friendship and touchingly good relations with teachers and relatives are over all.

What I noticed in cinema, is that was kind of smiling all 90 minutes - just so enjoyable was this film. Stunning nature, lovely trio (how well and naturally they act for kids!), simple life and heartwarming moments. Not a comedy - but plenty of fun, mainly because these kids are so sincere. Some romance, some hard reality of life. No big ups or downs - but positive emotion is definite.
