Audience Reviews for The Road Home (Wo de fu qin mu qin)

    Finally got round to watching this 15-year-old film. Very touching, well-directed, sumptuously filmed story of young love. If you are tired of seeing Chinese films that bring out the worst in people (corruption, abuse of power, greed, injustice), then you should watch this. I found the plot of The Story of Qiu Ju???????a bit more interesting though, but The Road Home is more beautiful to watch. Zhang Ziyi is very lovable here.

    Another gorgeous and well layered epic from Yimou. Zhang brings out the colour in ordinary folk and make them people that we would want to encounter in our lives.

    Chinese drama. Man returns to childhood village to bury father who died in nearby hospital, but mother wants the coffin brought back by foot across the mountains first. Uh oh... long film about long walk with everyone reminiscing, squabbling, developing and reconciling, cue poignant music and fade. But no, film then cuts back to the early days when mother and father first met and shows the simple story of them falling in love instead. Lovely. <img src="http://movie-sakura.cocolog-nifty.com/blog/images/the_road_home005.jpg">

    A true Romantic Film Here might even be considered a Chick Flick by some. Its about a man in China who is called home to bury his father, who was the village school teacher, so begins the novel as to how he met the man's mother who was a village girl who fell in love with the teacher at first sight. Not the typical American Love story, its better then that. Got to give it 5 Stars,
