Having not seen the US version I went to this last week on the recommendation of a friend who had seen it. The Japanese version is not a documentary in the usual sense. I saw the Japanese version and this version, which I think is the version that will be the definitive one, is a documentary in the sense that it focuses on the person being interviewed. That person is a stranger to the viewer, not a person who is taking the film on. The style is very clinical and logical. It is all about what the interviewer wants to say and not what the subject wants to say. That makes the whole film very easy to follow and to understand. The film has some flaws, most notably the film editing. That is to be expected, the way the interviews are edited is a bit strange. There are a few things I thought the film should have done better, for example, I was not convinced that the Asian child was a girl. A few people have commented on this. This child is indeed a boy, but one has to wonder if this boy is really a girl or if it is just an accident of the editing. The interviews are all on the side of the interviewer and he does not allow the interviewee to go off on his or her own. The interviewees are expected to tell the interviewer what is important to them in a lot of detail. However, it seems that this does not happen in the film. The interviews are of all different kinds and I think they are not in any way integrated in the film. There are other small problems, such as the small amount of footage in the film, and one can see that the interviews were shot in a hurry. There are also some cultural differences that are not so apparent to the viewer. In the US version, we have the sex scene and the sexual harassment (another US issue that does not appear to be dealt with very much). The Japanese version, on the other hand, is much more explicit and even discusses some of the more explicit issues that are covered in the US version. In this film, the sex is quite explicit, even for a man in the US, but the Japanese version covers this part of the film in much more detail. The Japanese version also covers the more explicit sexual harassment, and the interviewer has been explicit about what he wants to say. He asks the interviewees to explain what is going on and the answers are not particularly surprising. This is where I think the film is not very clear. One thing I did like about the Japanese version is the voice-over that tells us about the problems that the interviewees have had to deal with. It was very helpful to have that, but at the same time, it is not an important aspect of the film. It is the interviewees themselves that give the answers. There are a couple of things that are a bit surprising. For example, some of the Japanese interviewees were originally supposed to be women, but the women they interviewed turned out to be men. I don't know what the reason was, but the film did not mention that. Also, one interviewee said that the Japanese woman had called him a girl when he was a boy. In fact, the interviewee himself has said that he never met a woman as he was a boy, but then he changed his mind a little bit. As for the sexual harassment, it is almost always talked about in the US version, but it is also discussed in the Japanese version. In the US version, we are told that the interviewee has experienced sexual harassment. However, the Japanese version is silent about this. I think that this is a good thing because sexual harassment is a very difficult issue for the Asian American community. Many people may have had sexual harassment in their lives, and many others may not have. In the end, the film is very straightforward and you could learn a lot from it, even if it is not for everyone. But in the end, the film has been very good because it focuses on the interviewees, it has the interviewees talking about what they have experienced, and it has a clear focus. I have heard that there will be a remake, and I would be interested to see what it would be like.

Perhaps "Shou yi ren" should be called "The Emperor's New Clothes". Based on the novel by Yuen Fei-Fong, the film is a drama about two young brothers who become fast friends and competitors in a martial arts tournament. The story is one of the most difficult to adapt to film. The story is hard to translate to the screen. I think the film would have been better if the writers didn't mention the Chinese characters. Even so, the film is well made. It is a nice piece of work. The movie is worth watching.

Leaving China for a city where he can better understand his environment, young Chinese writer Ye Lung (Jimenez) comes to Boston with an aunt who was a film critic in China. Ye is told that he needs to be a great writer. The book in which Ye writes is not his own. It is from an old friend of his, a great writer who lived in China at that time. Ye decides to follow in his footsteps and he does. He lands a job in a Chinese bookstore and the only person he is interested in, the widow who wrote the book, writes a story in English and Ye finds the book a little too literary for him. However, he takes the book home and is taken by it. He learns that the widow is Chinese and is writing stories about her friends in China. One of these friends is in fact not Chinese. The widow wants to use her story to make a film, and the widow has left her daughter in China to marry a man who has nothing to do with her work in China. Ye helps her. And in the process, he finds he loves her very much. The best thing about this movie is that it is about people rather than about the work. There is a strong sense of humanity that arises from the friendship and friendship is the most powerful human emotion. The actors play their parts well and the acting is very good. The pace is too slow, and there are long silences that remind us of why we get up in the morning.

Although I'm not a fan of action movies, I was so enthralled by this movie I decided to watch it twice. The first time I found the action very suspenseful, but the second time I really liked it. The characters, their relationships, and their choices make you feel for them and the movie ends with the best kind of happy ending possible. To me it's a winner. In short, the story has no conventional ending, but instead is a very personal and sometimes shocking story about the choices that we make and the consequences of our actions. Some people may find the ending "hard to watch" but I enjoyed the story and the movie made me feel like I was watching it for the first time, so I would recommend it.

I don't really understand the concept of the movie, but i feel that it's a very good story. If you can relate to the stories, then this movie is a must watch. Because of the movie, i started to study abroad in China, and I learned a lot of new things about the society there. The movie really made me think about how life is in China, and how different people are from each other. Some of the parts of the movie, like the beginning, and the group of friends of the main character, makes you feel bad because of their bad experiences. Like when he goes to get help from his old friend, they were there, but then the other friend is not there. You feel sorry for him, because he's lost something that he wants, and you really want to see him succeed. Also the first meeting with the new friend, he falls in love with her, and then she tells him that she loves him too, and it's clear that this relationship will be special for them. Also, if you can relate to this movie, then i think you will like this movie too.

A very sincere movie. The whole film is very important, but the quality of the acting is not high. The only reason I didn't rate this movie a 10 is because of the ending. I didn't think the movie was ever going to end. I liked the way the story was moving along.

A short while ago I read the story of a man in his 30's and his adult son who get caught up in the execution of a political prisoner in China and it's up to the dad to find out what really happened to his son. The film is quite a bit longer than one would expect from a 90 minute film and there is quite a bit of background information given to the audience so you can really get a sense of the atmosphere and the problems the father and son are having trying to find out what really happened. As a character study the film is quite well done, the father, played by Zhang Ziyi, is a very likable character and her relationship with the son, played by Sun Li, is very well done. The father's attempts to get her to come to terms with her past are so real that you feel for her even though you know exactly what has happened to her and what is going to happen. There is a scene in which the father is not expecting the son to return from the execution and she asks him what he knows about the execution and he just kind of shrugs and says nothing. I really like the way the film treats the father's attitude towards his son, he's a very likable character and you really get a sense of what he's going through and how his relationship with his son is going to be effected by the news. I was not too sure about the ending but I think it was the right one. There was a scene at the end when the father was getting back into his car and he looked out the window and he saw the prison bus approaching and he just says, "Oh my God, that's my son!" That scene really touched me. Overall, I thought this was a good film and I would recommend it to people who are interested in seeing a character study film.

It has been a long time since I have seen a movie that has been more deeply, long term, than this one. A couple of years ago I read the reviews of "House by the Cemetery" and came to know that it is a short film. In fact I had never seen a full length movie before. Now, I decided to rent the film. I was not disappointed. It was a more than good movie, really great story. I was very surprised that it was not the same as I expected it to be. The movie is about the following characters: A man, his wife and their two daughters. The man is a Chinese chef who has to learn English to get a job in a restaurant. His wife is a housewife and a mother of three daughters. The young girls are pretty and they are sent to a boarding school to learn how to speak English. Their mother has no other way of communicating with them. A strange Englishman in the school offers them to stay with him. The man must learn to communicate with these girls as a master chef. There is another man who is their owner of the restaurant and he is interested in the young girls. It is not what I expected at all. I am sure that I did not expect a full length movie about the two girls and their parents. The story was very good, but the movie was too long and too dramatic. The story in the beginning was good and I thought the characters were very well drawn. The action, the music and the colors of the picture were very good. It was very good, but the movie dragged and that was the main problem. The plot was not complete and I felt that the story was not as good as I had expected. But I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in the American film culture, because it was well made and very good. It was interesting and at the same time very sad. I think that this movie is more than good. 7/10

This is a very strange film with a very unique ending. It is certainly not the best Chinese film I have ever seen, but it is definitely the most creative. The film has an unusual sense of how Chinese people think about death, and in particular the death of the family members. For example, when a close friend dies, the family and friends all keep quiet about it, as to not to offend them. When one of the close friends dies, the entire family and friends all burst out in laughter. But when the friend dies, the family and friends all burst out in sorrow. This is a powerful film that really deals with the death of the family members and the loss of a close friend. The acting is superb, especially that of the family members. This film is an exploration of how Chinese people deal with death. I would definitely recommend this film.

A movie of some type. Like 'Enter the Dragon' I have yet to see a movie like this one. Perhaps I missed it because I didn't understand it fully. 'Shou yi ren' had a more serious tone in its execution. It was not like a traditional kung fu movie. It was more of a comedy. I guess that's what makes it so enjoyable. Not so much the actual fighting but more the gags, actions and other stuff that makes the movie very entertaining. To say the same thing about the acting was also nice. I don't like a lot of the actors and their style. In this movie the cast did a nice job. It had great acting. I do remember that I felt some tension between the characters in this movie. The story itself seemed to be quite simple and predictable. I am not saying that it was an excellent story but the main character was likable. There were some nice twists in the story. There was also a decent message about fighting, not necessarily the anti-war one but more the fighting between brotherhood. I would recommend 'Shou yi ren' to anyone who is into kung fu movies. I would rate it at least a 7 out of 10.

I've seen this movie on DVD and I really enjoyed it. The story is about a group of three brothers in the countryside of Taiwan. One of the brothers is a pianist and is very talented. The other two brothers are a doctor and a professor. The story is about their friendship and how they become close to each other. The movie has a great soundtrack. The movie is really funny and very sad. The two brothers have a lot of fun and they do everything they can to get along. The two brothers are very close and it's a great movie to see.

I've seen this film twice now, and I'm still wondering about the ending. I find it hard to believe that the woman (and her friends) are willing to kill themselves as a way of rejecting her husband and her abusive boyfriend. Was there more to it? How did she end up with that man anyway? When she says she's sure she doesn't like her husband any more, she means it. The film just leaves you hanging. Is she just sick, or is there something else going on? I can't explain it. But it's enough to make you wonder.

A very good movie to watch if you love to be caught up in a story. I liked the actors, the script, and the whole artistic style. The director does a good job of conveying the story from beginning to end. The story of the group of friends from boarding school in the 1970s is a well told and compelling story. The movie could have been a little bit more dramatic or more dramatic for the sake of having more impact. The film is very watchable and a must-see. The director has done a very good job of crafting a beautiful story with a soundtrack that evokes a mood from the beginning to the end. The music of the film is so enchanting and emotional. It adds to the movie and helps to create the mood.

I was very impressed by this film. I love the film because it is an emotional movie. It makes you cry. It makes you laugh. It makes you think. I'm really going to see it again. I hope it gets good reviews.

I've always been a fan of this film, and I thought it was a very moving and powerful film. This film has been on my "to see" list for a long time. I had never heard of this film, and I'm glad I finally saw it. This film has a very interesting plot, and I think that's why it's so good. The acting is good, but the story itself is so good that it's difficult to take your eyes off the screen. This film will make you feel like you're in the middle of it all, and it will make you feel like you have to watch it over and over again to catch all the little details that make this film so great. I recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a good, strong, emotional film. I give this film a 9 out of 10. I hope that you will see this film. See it!

I can't believe that this film was made. It is a story of a family who is struggling to survive, and the difficulties that they face. The way the director told the story was very effective. The family struggles with the demands of their lives, and the struggle to survive. The film is very touching and realistic. The director took a lot of risks in the story telling, and the result is a very good movie. It is very realistic and the story is very sad. The acting is very good. The only problem I had with the film was the ending. I didn't really understand how the family survives. It was very predictable. It was very sad. I think the director did a good job in telling the story. I think it is a very good movie. I really enjoyed it. I think the director did a great job. I give it a 10/10.

I was lucky enough to see this movie last night and was thoroughly impressed by it. This movie was the only movie I've seen in a while that I was very pleased with. I won't go into too much detail as I don't want to give away anything that would ruin it for others. The acting was incredible. There are no weak performances in this movie. All the characters are amazing and really bring out the best in each other. They all have their own unique personality and so the audience can relate to each character in their own way. The story was outstanding and it was really interesting to see how the characters were affected by the situation and how the story developed. It was very unique to see how a movie can get so dark and yet have such a positive effect on the characters and audience. The plot is a bit complicated and I think that was the biggest flaw in this movie. It is a bit confusing at times and it is hard to follow at times. I think it would have been better if they didn't have to explain the plot as much as they did. The characters were very well done. They all have a unique personality that they all have and it is hard to see how they are related. I think the only downside was the characters were not developed very well and they didn't have much depth to them. I think they could have been better developed if they had more time to develop them. The acting was fantastic. The direction was fantastic. I loved the story and I really felt the emotions the characters were going through. I was very impressed with the direction they went with this movie. I think this movie is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time and I think that everyone should see it. It's a very intense movie and it is very well done.

I was in a cinema with some friends, and there were a few people who were saying that this film was "so bad". I was thinking that this film was really good, but it was also very good. I thought that the plot was really good, and it was really interesting to watch. I thought that the acting was really good, and the plot was very good. I really liked the ending. I think that this film is very good, and I really recommend that you watch it. I think that this film is really good.

I had been looking forward to seeing this film for some time, having heard of it and having read some of the reviews. I'm not sure I have seen a more elegant film, or more humane in the way the characters are treated. I was left with a feeling of hope and happiness for the world, and I was reminded of the stories of the great leaders of the past, such as Martin Luther King and Gandhi, who have given hope to millions of people. I have to admit that I was left with a feeling of awe, admiration and admiration for the director, who really pulled the movie together. I was especially impressed with the way he handled the ending, which was very well done. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who is interested in film. It is a story that is very relevant and very well told.

I've just seen this film in a cinema in China. I've never seen a Chinese film in the cinema before, and I think I am going to watch it again in the near future. The reason I saw it in China is because it was the first Chinese film I had ever seen. So far, I have seen "Wu ri hu ren" and "The Chinese Witch" (both of which I saw in the US) but this is the first film I have seen in China that was directed by an Asian. I can't say that I'm a fan of Asian films, but I have to say that this film was very good. The acting was great, the story was good, the cinematography was amazing. The film is about a woman who has lost her husband and has to live with her two kids in a very small house. There are a lot of themes and ideas that are brought up in this film. I loved the film, and it is a very important film. I would definitely recommend this film to everyone. I would give it a 9/10.

A very good movie. It is a little bit slow in the beginning, but then you start to see the big picture. I think that this movie is about the loneliness of a person, that we can never forget. I think that this movie is a great inspiration for all people, especially for people who are lonely. It is a very good movie, and I recommend it to all people.

This film is a tribute to the Chinese people. It shows how many of them have a lot of respect for their elders and are willing to help others in need. The film also shows how the Chinese government is so eager to assist the people and is willing to do anything to help the country. This film has a lot of humor in it. It also has some very moving scenes and is one of the most moving films I have ever seen. This film is a must see for all those who are interested in Chinese culture and history. The Chinese people are great and their culture is beautiful. This film is a must see for everyone.

The year is 2003 and Hong Kong's "Ghost" actress Liu Xia has become a star in her own right. She is a popular actress who has appeared in several Hong Kong TV dramas, and has been seen in films such as "Ghost", "Gandhi" and "Dog Day Afternoon". She has also done some voice-overs for Hong Kong films. This is the second film from the director of "The Abduction" and "The Girl Who Cried Wolf". The plot is about a mother and her son who move into a new apartment in the city. The mother and her son get along well and they have a close relationship. However, the father is absent from the family. She gets the impression that the father is not in the apartment, and so she decides to investigate the father's absence. The film is an extremely emotional film and it is extremely moving. The acting is great and the director is able to create a very realistic atmosphere. I recommend this film to anyone who likes Hong Kong films and is interested in the acting. It is not the best film in the world but it is a good film to watch.

I really liked this movie. It's a very good movie with a great story and great actors. I was a little bit disappointed because it's not a full-length movie. It's a short movie with a very good story. The director did a great job with the story. It's a very good story, and the acting is really great. I think that this is a very good movie.
