Aftershock (Tangshan dadizhen) (2010)

  We live for so long, so comfortably in our cities, in our cozy environment that we forget how fragile we are in front of nature. Aftershock reminds us of that in a very hard way.  There is some difficulty for a westerner to understand the mentality and behaviour of the film’s characters. However, the acting of each and every one (*) makes Aftershock an interesting story. Had the propaganda about the magnificence of the Red Revolutionary Army and the rest being less obviously insulting, it would have being a much better film.

My rating: 06/10

PS. (*) except the guy playing the Canadian who gave the worts performance I have ever seing in film!
