riding alone for thousands of miles (2006)

a father's and a son's long wait to forgiveness, it is when takata travels to china to film a masked folk opera "riding alone for thousand miles" for his dying son that takata begins his solo journey to reunite with his estranged son, in allusion to the opera about the fabled story of lord guan's solo journey for brotherly love and loyalty.

Is it a nice movie? It looks beautiful.

the scenery shots in the film (especially in china) are really spectacular. that's a big add-on to watch it, which for me expresses the physical distance which complements well with the emotional distance that seems to me the core of the film.
you should watch it.
