- ‘It’s a heartbreaking movie with a lot of staying power,’ the US National Society of Film Critics said of Beijing-born filmmaker’s piece
The film, directed by a woman from Beijing who was educated in the US and now lives there, “is a mixture of documentary realism and fiction”, Chang said.
“She uses non-professional actors in a way that’s intimate and organic; it’s a heartbreaking movie with a lot of staying power.”
He noted that the society does not base its choices either on a film’s box office or its budget. “We care about the quality of the films.”
