What are people saying?

  • Aaken's rating of the film City of Jade

    The film is Midi Z's attempt to catch pieces of his enigmatic brother who left home when Midi was still very young, and the brother's desperate quest to find jade. The film shows sumptuous landscapes which strongly contrast with the poignancy of the miners' lives. At the end of the film, we don't know much about this elusive brother, except that he will always be flying ahead, no matter the cost.
