the film is forced to choose fantastic stories
23 February 2019 | by yoggworkSee all my reviews

In order to express some real thoughts, the film is forced to choose fantastic stories, complicated narrative lines and the return to traditional values at the end. When vested interests join forces to strangle Mutian, the world will eventually stagnate and be completely overthrown by disasters such as earthquakes. I think that if the director reconstructs the ending, will continue to pursue the will and action of Mutian, the mood of this film will be more far-reaching. "What you see is not necessarily the truth."
