For many of our Chinese audiences, the power and courage to make "To live" go beyond Americans' imagination. He was even banned three years for that. Everytime he dared to make a move away from certain rules, he would make a breakthrough, whether it was recognized instantly or not.
Whether the actings or the designs are superb, and the twisted ending may look somewhat odd at first, but the clues hidden in the front part of the movie will come back to remind you that it had been set up. Almost flawless in suspense, and a triumph in the aspect of philosophy and humanity.
