Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: ... strangely flat.
Fresh: One of the most beautiful and touching road movies in recent years.
Fresh: There is a great late-career role for Ken Takakura, a Japanese actor, now in his 70s, who started out in gangster films and has been seen in Hollywood films.
Fresh: The film is simple bordering on sentimental bordering on sloppy, yet it's kept in artistic check by the vast backdrops of China's remote Yunnan province and by Takakura's nearly wordless performance.
