Audience Reviews for The Chinese Botanist's Daughters (Les Filles du botaniste)

  • Jun 07, 2007
    Visually simply amazing and wonderfully subtle, the tension between the two women is sensual, palpable, poetic even. This film could be watched without any sound at all and be understood just through its visuals. The longing looks, the lingering of the camera on the skin, the amazing scenery... Very powerful film.
