Tian yun shan chuan qi

Jin Xie China, 1980

José Neves's rating of the film The Legend of Tianyun Mountain

The clear melodramatic quality of many sequences do not deny a propensity for a demonstrative tendency of ideological assumptions that determine the film, constantly slipping it into a blistering act, inclusive cinematographic, that weighs much more than flows. The initial generic is beautiful and its narrative plasticity should have been the the constitutive basis of the film.
