Critic Reviews for Electric Shadows
Strip away the silly ideology of the old films, and Electric Shadows could be any movie buff's tale. It's the memory movie of our own mind, in English, Mandarin or whatever language the local Bijou screened them in.
No excerpt available.
Debuting writer-director Xiao Jiang shows she has the makings of a quality mainstream filmmaker.
Dreamy lighting, soft colors and lilting music mix with an agreeable cast.
This fanciful Chinese tearjerker wants to be an Asian Cinema Paradiso but doesnt quite live up to its prototype.
For every privileged moment (mother and daughter dancing in a yard of screen-like sheets hanging in the breeze), there's a death or sociopathic act that says movies can ruin your life.
Audience Reviews for Electric Shadows
If I knew Chinese would have probably liked better. But I found it an interesting film. Makes one think about why persons respond the way they do, often not even in their best interests.
Sort of a Chinese Cinema Paradiso. Sentimental and compelling.
touching slow paced drama that takes time to unfold. Beautifully photographed, and a special film with an interesting story. My only complaint is that the entire film leads up to the end moment, when the 2 leads are reunited. However, that climax is so soft, almost to a whisper. I believe more could have been developed out of that moment, so in that sense a lost opportunity. An excellent work for a first time director.
