I love films :-)
A little warning about my ratings.
Having figured that life is too short and it is definitely not an exam, I rate films on what I enjoyed watching, not on the quality of the film. So a masterpiece may a true masterpiece, on every critic?s top ten list, receiving numerous awards and accolades, and no doubt everyone should see it before they die, but if I fall asleep on the fast forward button, one star.
Three stars is my average, as in hey that was mighty fine, no need to give me my money back on that one thanks. One means I should have ironed socks instead.
And five means I had such a wonderful time I would like to thank the director for being born, the cast and crew for doing their jobs , the producer, the film distributer, the financer, the agents, the ticket seller, my family, their family and a special thank you to whoever it was that came up with the crazy idea of moving pictures in the first place

Old blind musician wanders around the Chinese backwaters with young blind disciple in tow. There is a plot.. old musician believes than when he breaks his 1000th string on his instrument (hence the title) he will see again and there's some quite pretty music and some philosophical fortune-cookie musings but really not enough to keep you glued to the screen for 110 minutes. Quite a good film to take up origami to keep you semi-preoccupied during the slow unfolding. .
KInd of interesting, especially to show how boring hair is nowadays, but I didn't much care fo rthe subject and his strange, elocution-trained voice. The 80's Vidal & Beverley Sassoon TV series, with white teeth & orange tan was a low point.
Filmed like a documentary, watching it is like sitting in a cafe seeing the world go by; If you have patience & pay attention, someting always happens.
Especially around a goat.
I loved the film, but I can equally imagine others being bored silly.
