I watched mountain cry last night and i was absolutely amazed. The movies still won't get out of my head. The first thing i noticed was the beautiful cinematography and how consistent the visuals were throughout the film. Every shot was beautiful too look at with an excellent soundtrack to go with it. The acting is superb. The two leads do a wonderful job and their romance is very believable and heartwarming. The female actress (yueting lang) in particular is excellent though she doesn't speak a word throughout the film. It is also developed very well. I love this movie, in fact i think it's a masterpiece. I was shocked to see that it only had 206 votes on IMDb. This film should be watched by more people. It is a gem! Highly recommended. I urge you to watch it!
