Although I have not been in China and do not understand Chinese customs I thought it was a very good movie. I guess unless we know Chinese customs can we understand the movie.
I thought My Fair Son was boring and slow. It was confusing at times and the message the director was trying to get across was oftentimes lost. I felt the filming was poor and the quality substandard.
Movie was well photographed and the characters were slowly developed and their story was lost to me in the slowness of the plot.
A nice film
sad and confusing
