“Lush technical values, an engaging turn from its lead and some contextual relevance to Chinese society keeps the film from dwelling on its much-performed tune.”~Hollywood Reporter

Aroview: Gentle drama that draws together an elderly farmer and his spoiled urban grand-daughter on a lengthy pilgrimage through beautiful south-western China with a caged bird in tow. The project started out as a Chinese-language remake of director Philippe Muyl's own THE BUTTERFLY (2002) before evolving into an original screenplay.
