Mao's Last Dancer Solarmovie review

The film Mao's Last Dancer is incredibly captivating from the first to the last minutes, not letting go of your attention for a second. This film was directed by Bruce Beresford and I have a lot of respect for him for his long and difficult career.

To summarize, it seems to me that very few such high-quality films came out in 2009.
