At times Eve plays like an unshaped memoir. What makes the film almost satisfying is that [director] Kwan has given us a charming and lovingly realized world. But halfway is still only halfway.

Both a finely wrought period piece and a slice of delicately captured childhood.

One of the most enchanting and memorable films made in this country.

Eve & the Fire Horse has a kind of poetry that lifts it above the typical drama of immigrant life and gives [Kwan's] characters a lasting poignancy.

The incomplete storylines really do a disservice to Horse's fascinating characters and to those of us watching who feel like part of the family.

The script's wry humour and Kwan's sure touch with her cast save it from becoming too sombre or too sentimental. In fact, she's created something rare: a family movie that makes keen observations about family life.

The beliefs of children are so absolute and pure, from the dreadful feeling that they can be responsible for a death to the joy of believing a statue can come to life at night and goldfish can sing opera.

April 24, 2006 Full Review Source:

A remarkably good-natured and gentle film about spirituality's place in a family's life.

February 3, 2006 Full Review Source:

An endearing memoir of childhood and of a certain time and place of innocence.

Eve and the Fire Horse is an ambitious feature-length debut from Julie Kwan, which demonstrates her directing skill when it comes to actors.

Kwan has an astonishingly introspective eye for detail, and a nurturing quality.

While the Catholic lore in this film may be wonky, the relationship between the young Chinese-Canadian sisters who try on Catholicism in a bid to safeguard their family is bang-on.

Audience Reviews for Eve and the Fire Horse

The comparison film is Whale Rider which was so much more effective. This effort doesn't quite cut it.
