You may appreciate the ballsy critique of a nation's callous obsession with development and reconstruction.

Paints an evocative picture of modern China.

There's little insight to be found in Ying's presentation of even seemingly helpful citizens as fundamentally cruel and animalistic.

September 23, 2008 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Simply brilliant film-making for less than $5000. For anybody the least bit curious about China today and who has a taste for sophisticated comedy, this is not to be missed.

With Bringing Father Home being such a great movie you forget that it's an amateur film.The boy left the village a kid but came back as a man who wasn't in his right mind & the journey forever changed him
