Critic Reviews for The Nightingale (Ye Ying - Le promeneur d'oiseau)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

A gentle tale that could easily lapse into mawkish sentiment but largely steers clear of doing so.

A sweetly affecting Chinese film about a elderly man who opens his spoiled granddaughter to the analog world during a road trip across rural China ...

November 5, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The Nightingale is a beautifully photographed, well-acted parable about tradition and change in modern-day China, that will either move you to tears or strike you as overly saccharine and formulaic.

March 21, 2016 | Full Review…

Well acted and beautifully photographed, the movie offers a window into both modern urban and traditional Chinese life.

December 21, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The Nightingale doesn't aspire to be much more than a heartwarming road movie through rural China, and at that, it succeeds admirably.

Sounding dry and portentous on paper, it is actually a heart-warming affair centred around its two central performances.
