      Ben Sachs Chicago Reader [Writer-director Qiu Sheng] elicits pleasingly sincere performances from both children and adults. Mar 11, 2020 Full Review Chloe Lizotte Film Comment Magazine Qiu's directorial touch is remarkably gentle-while rhyming images and stories across plotlines, he avoids schematic logic in favor of a light mystery of unity, seeking a quiet depth beyond sensory perception. Jun 17, 2019 Full Review Glenn Kenny New York Times Qiu shows remarkable facility as he patiently adds layer upon layer to a mystery that wants to stay one. Apr 4, 2019 Full Review Grant Watson Fiction Machine As a debut work, it is sensational, and suggests Qiu Sheng is yet another new generation Chinese director on whom to keep an expectant eye. Rated: 8/10 Feb 20, 2023 Full Review Andrew Heskins easternKicks.com Qiu Sheng's debut is at times non-linear and experimental, at others a heart-warming coming-of-age drama... Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 23, 2020 Full Review Phoebe Chen Cinema Scope There's no reliance on the easy nostalgia of period markers or a childhood boxed away as idyll; both storylines seem thoroughly contemporary.
