    汤尼·雷恩对华语片是真爱,吃瓜群众前来围观:第一颗镜头就很不喜欢

  2. Eric Rucker's rating of the film Taking Father Home

    Genius. Inspired. Bill Forsyth, Abbas Kiarostami, and Vittorio de Sica rolled into one. Deeply human. Funny in a tender, and painful way. Inspired compositions and use of space inside and outside the frame. Coincidences that would be improbable in the hands of other story tellers take on the texture and probability of life while having mythic and visual inevitability. Inspired. Inspired!

  4. John Crawford's rating of the film Taking Father Home

  5. Weston Campbell's rating of the film Taking Father Home

    A fine example of how quality cinematography is about more than what camera you use.

    Yet another great talent to emerge from China in the last decade. Very simple in terms of story and approach, and the resolution did feel a little over done, but there's promising talent here. I love that the film begins by thanking everybody who worked on the film for free.

  7. Zachary W's rating of the film Taking Father Home

    Ying's vision of China is one that psychologically fragmented itself through the process of betraying the utopian horizon for an ugly totalitarian capitalism. As communities pull themselves apart to accommodate both economic development and its attendant environmental ravages, Xu Yun slowly reveals himself to be not simply a fish out of water, but a kindred spirit to the flood that promises to swallow Zigong whole.
