The graceful and thorny opening up of a child's world

September 25, 2009 Full Review Source: CinePassion

Hou's film places demands on our powers of observation, insisting that we, like Tung-tung, attend to the minutiae, ironies, and deeper meanings it offers us.

These obvious elements of melodrama never reach any kind of hysterical pitch, however. Hou keeps everything wrapped up in a tone of warmth and childlike optimism.

Hou's relative invisibility serves the story, allowing the mood, pretty scenery, and accomplished naturalistic performances to take center stage.
