    rare look into the brutal reality of life at the other end of global capitalism's extreme division of labor.

  2. sarahyuniarni's rating of the film Last Train Home

    The emotional portrayal of working-class family in China, the struggling to make-ends-meet, the effort to repair their broken relationship and the daughter selfishness in aiming to lead a different life.

  3. Who told you this room exists?'s rating of the film Last Train Home

    Lixin Fan did a great job in not only saving himself from getting crushed in the sea of immigrants but also filming this fine documentary. I read from the Film Update that Qin eventually realized school is important and took vocational school where she worked.

  4. weka's rating of the film Last Train Home

    Somber look into the lives of Chinese families in China working in factories.

  5. msmichel's rating of the film Last Train Home

    Globalization as a devestator of the family unit. A culture under siege. A staggering documentary looking at the mass exodus from villiage to city in chasing the almighty yuan. Moving and unsettling. The sequence when the daughter openly rebels against her father and breaks the 'fourth wall" very affecting. A late starting industrial/capitalistic revolution out of control.

  6. beatie's rating of the film Last Train Home

    A portrait by Lixin Fan about an astonishing migration involving 130 million Chinese workers who each year travel by train, boat and foot to return home for New Year’s. An incredibly powerful, haunted story that should be seen and discussed around the world. Highly recommended!

  21. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film Last Train Home

    So well shot I became convinced it was staged- until fists started flying. The filmmakers use the strength of documentary to immerse in ways a traditional film cannot.
