Getting Home2007

  • 4.2
In this soulful and humane comedy, Zhao, a middle-aged construction worker, struggles to fulfill a dying co-worker's last wish to be buried in China's Three Gorges region. Setting out with his colleague's body in tow, Zhao travels hundreds of miles across extraordinary countryside, encountering a number of colorful adventures and characters and even discovering love in some unlikely quarters. Director Zhang Yang's humorous and moving tale of friendship offers a powerful (and sometimes slapstick) commentary on the value of community and human connectivity in modern China.

Everything in life is so transient, but Zhao takes on a task and a journey in the name of friendship -- His wit and loyalty teach us how to withstand the burdens ahead. There are scenes that will make you laugh and cry, and there's hardly a dull moment in this awesome, elevating film -- uplifting in spite of the bittersweet tears.

One of the best films on Fandor.com.

beautiful cinematography, but I swear I saw the dead guy blink.

An unusual road movie. A fine performance by Benshan Zhao, but the not quite believable premise (carrying around a dead body in warm weather) made some scenes an annoyance.
