Este documental de Wang Bing nos ofrece un retrato íntimo de una familia de campesinos que malvive en una pequeña aldea, con los maravillosos paisajes montañosos de la provincia china de Yunnan de fondo.
THREE SISTER immerses us in a world that is rarely seen. Viewers are invited to see lives lived well below the radar. That this world is that of the impoverished denizens of China's Yunnan province is especially important, as it has never been in the Chinese government's interest that we be able peer into this world. Oldest sister Yingying is one of the most fascinating and touching figures in contemporary cinema.
A really wonderful documentary, starting by taking the time to show kids at play with all the real and fake tears, attention seeking, random violence and kindness. We see the hardships of a motherless girl in rural poverty, looking after her two little brothers with no complaint. But then the seemingly endless drudgery is ended by a migration to work and school, as if entering the modern age. Fascinating.
I saw the film at the Busan FF where it is presented this year. This film is incredible, what an amazing picture of nowadays China it gives, without any judgments or any coments, Wang Bing delivers for our eyes an angle that is too much (if not always) forgotten about China. A moving and estonishing view about family, love and changes! A definite must see that really was worth the Venice Orizzonti award it received.
Real, slow pace then raw. Most of the time stand still camera invites you not to a simple immersion into a remote and harsh environment, but to a reflection on human condition. No matter the setting environment we're in, rural or urban, we're probably, since the youngest ages, just following some culture of survival.
'Les trois sœurs du Yunnan' met en image le quotidien difficile de trois enfants chinois que leur mère a abandonné et qui se débrouillent seules - ou presque, leur père étant parti en ville chercher du boulot. Wang Bing a le don de mettre au premier plan des personnes marginales avec une mise en scène très classique, mais néanmoins pleine de poésie. On s'attache facilement à ces petites filles débrouillardes. 4/5.
very patient cinematography which captures the mundane aspects of migrant life--from herding sheep, pigs, and goats to picking pine cones and collecting horse dung. There are numerous moments when YingYing picks up the mantle of motherhood like when she picks lice off of FenFen or when she helps her grandpa cook. there are also moments of lost childhood like when she tries to study but gets interrupted by her grandpa
