Audience Reviews for Zhaibian (The Heirloom)
Nothing new here...acting is so-so by so-so actors, the plot rather pedestrian and the camera work apparently done by those afflicted with ADD...scenes jump around..characters just appear with no recollection of how they got there...blame the scriptwriters and the Director for this mumbo-jumbo mess I guess. When the viewer spends more time trying to figure out why something has happened instead of experiencing it...the movie has lost me and my patience..
This film has interesting ideas drawing on asian folklore, and is very beautiful to look at (especially the main house set, fix the leaks and I'd move in like a shot) but while I could bear the slow pace at the begining due to building the atmosphere, it never seemed to pick itself up to make itself special to the viewer.
