Long time since I watched perfect drama. Every father, son, everyone who values human relation must watch this movie.
An extremely simple yet powerful film that is destined to become a classic in near future...
if you like long journeys, landscapes and a simple story.
Simple meditative film about a father handing over the reigns of his postman job to his son during one last journey through the Hunan mountains. A lovely film, enough to make you envy them their day job and the scenery and cinematography are stunning. HIghly recommended for people who like walking.

ohh i loved those landscapes. i'd live there too for the rest of my life *
The movie held my attention for its brief running time, but its overly sentimental script and telegraphed 'message' was a little too much for my cynical ass to stomach. If you enjoy weepy sentimentality, go for it, this is for you. Me, I found the whole thing tiresome.
Awesome cinematography, symbolism, and at times the story is very emotional and touching, but it seems like 60% of the film is just watching them walk through the mountains, which gets very dull.
Brilliant. Simple, and yet so complex and deep in its examination of a relationship between father and son, of responsibility, of growing into a man, of duty, etc. The subtitles on the DVD I had were laughably horrible, and yet the movie is so good, the acting so sublime, and the flashbacks so effective that even struggling to figure out the barely decipherable Engrish subs you can understand exactly what is going on with a depth that words couldn't add anything to. I rarely ever cry during a movie, but this made me tear up more than once. Basic premise: a mountain postman is getting old, his knees are going bad, so his 24yo son is going to take over his route. He takes is son through walking three days through the mountains to deliver the mail, and show his son the route and the job. But he is also showing his son the path to adulthood, attempting to overcome the estrangement of always being away from home on the mailroute while his son grew up without his presence, and we explore love, family, duty, work, the tensions of modernity, and so much more. Wonderful film. A movie like this reminds me of Jack Mccarthy bemoaning overdone and overly complex poetry, emphasizing just how HARD it is to make something really complex appear to be so simple. This movie is like that. It is pure and devastating simplicity. The kind of film you could watch forever.
