Movie Info

Eve Eng (Phoebe Jojo Kut) is the 9-year-old daughter of Buddhist Chinese immigrants living in Vancouver, British Columbia. Although Eve has been raised with her family's traditional Chinese beliefs, she begins to doubt that their religion can see her family through a string of misfortunes. Much to the dismay of their traditionally-minded family members, Eve and her equally independent sister, Karena (Hollie Lo), take a new and unusual path: they discover Catholicism.

Critic Reviews for Eve and the Fire Horse

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (3)

  • 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.

    July 6, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    January 27, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • 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.

    September 10, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Fire Horse is a nice enough film, but at the risk of being a curmudgeon, I am hard pressed to see what all the fuss is about. In this fashion, it is intensely Canadian, nice without being too much of anything else.

    August 24, 2017 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    September 26, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

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