Audience Reviews for A Time to Live, a Time to Die

  • Mar 31, 2013
    poetically filmed and touching coming of age story based on hou's family's experience coming from the mainland to taiwan during the war. at first seemingly temporary residents, they soon find themselves trapped by the communist takeover, the children as they grow enduring the deaths of their father, then their mother and eventually their old grandmother, who was always getting lost trying to find her way back to her home village. very moving in the end, marred for me only by the too sentimental music at some points
