Stepping over mountain

A verified and solid historical action about the conquerors of the highest point in the world. Considering that quite a few films are filmed on this subject, I think it certainly deserves attention. The opinion that this movie is too corny and love lines are a hindrance here, I think it is wrong. In this case, you should watch documentaries so as not to be distracted by the drama. On top of that, there is a lot of propaganda, which also causes a negative attitude towards this film. Listen, you seriously thought that if you watch a film made in China, then the communist component will not seep into it. Take a look around: cinema is different in different countries of the world, because different people influence cinema in different ways and cinema has its own flavor from this. You don't need to love all of them and admire them. You just need to respect them. And their work.

As for me, I will never stop loving and admiring Zhang Ziyi, one of my favorite actresses with bottomless black eyes. And why they say that China is red...
