News & Interviews for Not One Less
Critic Reviews for Not One Less
This thematic 'lesson' is served up with non-didactic grace complemented by tiny bursts of humour.
With Not One Less, Zhang Yimou has fashioned what feels like an uncannily accurate portrait of a culture where Communist ideology has vanished like a brief dream, as traditional community values clash with the burgeoning cult of money.
Small movie, big impact.
Despite its deliberate austerity, Not One Less is extraordinarily rich.
The Chinese director Zhang Yimou has a rare gift for dramatizing highly theatrical stories in highly naturalistic settings.
Audience Reviews for Not One Less
Lovely film about a teacher's mission to ensure that children are still educated when he is challenged with a personal responsibility for a month.
Do you have a heart that beats inside your body? If you do, then you will like this film. It starts out a little slow, but gets better in the middle and ends with a powerful climax. Yimou Zhang direction is perfect. He just simply tells the story, and it looks great. There is no ego, or fancy editing. The kids in this film are about the cutest things I've ever seen, and are very true to life. In fact, all of this film is very true to life......and like life, it can be beautiful and sad at the same time.
