Really felt ransported to China through this film and it was wonderful to learn about aspects of different cultures one wouldn't usually be aware of.
I really enjoyed this film so I feel like 6 seems harsh but I think it's because it failed to capture me 100% of the time and so the emotional blows weren't as hard hitting as I'd expected them to be given the topic.
Beautifully acted and edited.

Interesting story and really enjoyed the cultural aspects of the movie. It gave an interesting understand of how Chinese culture looks at age and the role that family plays in that regard. It's beautifully filmed and the acting is great.
However, I did find it too slow. It lost momentum at times, and I found myself drifting off. But overall good, and one of those movies that might actually stick with you after. I have a feeling it's one of those movies that becomes better with time, because it actually teaches you an interesting life lesson!
You can tell this was made with care.

Cinematic, poignant, and emotionally engaging. An expose with a storyline that transcends cultures.
