I saw this film’s poster in 2000-01 as a kid. When I was searching for movies a few years ago it caught my attention and I downloaded it without reading anything about it. But when I got information on this movie, it sounded like a boring artsy movie. Finally I thought about giving it a try so I could delete it from disk and make space for other movies so I watched this movie and I was completely wrong! This movie is an absolute masterpiece. I thought it’d be hard to pass the time but I didn't realize when time passed away!!
Story is very simple but endearing, moving and very romantic! Without too many unnecessary romance scenes this movie is classic romance! Well balanced with sad and joyful scenes but mostly it’s a movie that will make you smile. With the least amount of dialogues it felt very calm. Visuals were stunning and music was tranquil! Overall background was serene and only natural sounds were present but when the music played…it was just beautiful! Another reason why I love this movie was the village setup and tradition of ‘The Way Home’. This movie reminded me of days of my life in village, whole setup was quite similar to the village in which I lived. Also the tradition of ‘The Way Home’ is exactly the same in my country; I was moved during those scenes.
Main attraction of the movie is Zhang Ziyi, brilliant in her debut movie. She’s not our usual sexy goddess and kick ass Zhang Ziyi but instead she played a very innocent, sweet, charming girl with pigtails! When she ran, when she smiled and when she spoke…everything made me smile!
…and at the end I was crying…
Very simple, endearing, romantic, moving film with gorgeous Asian beauty - Love it <3
A Bronx Tale. I grew up in an Italian town and can relate to the atmosphere of the movie. I also love the fact that even though one of the main characters is a mob boss, it's more of a drama about family values than of the mob life. Plus, it's the only mob movie I know of where Robert DeNiro is in it but not as a mobster, lol.
Ooh i like that one! I'd have to say my favorite movie is gone with the wind. There are some gorgeous scenes in it. Also, its long enough that no matter how many times you watch it you notice something new.
