  1. Max Seqgar's rating of the film The Other Half

    Uff! Real, bold, diverse, visually rich, hard facted, and light hearted. Proof that low budget don't make a bad movie. Excellent!!!

  2. Vassilis Tsitsopoulos's rating of the film The Other Half

    Incredibly interesting film. There is a transcendent quality about it too that comes when it is least expected. A fresh and tragic look on a world we prefer not to know.

  3. Weston Campbell's rating of the film The Other Half

    A refreshingly real break from Chinese cinema which tends (in my limited experience) more often towards slick style and escapist romanticism.

  4. aubfuscate's rating of the film The Other Half

    The Other Half was great for the humor and the non-standard Mandarin. It's the China I know and love.

  5. Melissa V's rating of the film The Other Half

    Fantastic dry humor! Love the commentary on society too, really gets you to think about everything going on in the world today.

  6. Holyphool's rating of the film The Other Half

    Have just watched Ying Liang's beautiful "Taking Father Home," (2006), a film about a country boy, and his 2 ducks, looking for a lost father in a city. Very contemplative, real, dealing with the ordinary life of people, the film is beautifully shot and made, with a lethal serenity that is very moving. Am looking forward to seeing "The Other Half." Liang, and Peng Shang are the future of Chinese cinema.
