Suzhou River Solarmovie review

The plot of the film Suzhou River captured me from the first frames and did not let me go until the very end - in the end I was very pleased with the viewing. I met this film a long time ago, but I still couldn't get it, I couldn't bring myself to sit down and watch, although, I confess, Ye Lou is my favorite director. An excellently tailored film of the genre Drama - the acting is mesmerizing, the direction and camera work delights. To summarize, it seems to me that very few such high-quality films came out in 2000. Due to the fact that the film was filmed in West Germany, we can fully appreciate the influence of the mentality of this country on the events taking place on the screen.... Show more
