Editorial Reviews

A Thousand Years Of Good Prayers: A woman in her early 40s moves from China to America to start a new life. Her father comes to visit her because of her recent divorce. Their generational and cultural conflicts end up revealing the darker lies and cover-ups within her family during the cultural revolution. The Princess Of Nebraska: Sasha, a China-born 18-year-old finds herself four months pregnant. She interrupts her studies to travel from Nebraska to San Francisco to determine what to do with her pregnancy. It is a revealing look at a young woman growing up under the new economic prosperity of China over the last 20 years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Whisper of a movie. January 22, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've always have been a fan of Wayne Wang and this film is the reason why. A Young girl finds out she is going to have a baby. Is she going to have a abortion? Is she going to keep the baby? Is she going to sell her baby in the illegal baby market? The beautiful Ling Li
plays the young girl not as a victim, but as a strong vocal person trying to make up her mind. Or is she just bored and every idea that pops in her mind she runs with it for that moment. One moment she can be very sexy and cunning, and the next she can be waif like and innocent. We watch this film as if we are picking into a window. I don't think it was the director's idea to let us fully into her world. It's like listening to a couple of 18 year old girls talking at the bus stop and their ideas and thoughts jumping all over the place. We may think their is no substance to what they say, but to them nothing else matters except what they think and feel. It's slow
moving, but I did not want to be rushed. There is a beautiful moment (one of many)where she looks at herself in a mirror and she is looking at her belly. Her belly bearly shows she is going to have a baby,which by the way helps her when she wants to hang out at bars.
The special features are great. My favorite is the photo gallery on making this film. The photos and there are quite a few of Ms. Li are breath taking. This woman is mad beautiful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Concentration July 9, 2009
By AD
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of those films which requires a great deal of concentration and some intuition to keep up with. It is a good and well-done movie that treats accidental pregnancy with respect and caring. It tries to show the emotions and thoughts a young lady would probably go through in living the situation. The ending is incredibly realistic though very symbolic, enigmatic and perplexing. The ending could give one a sense of hopelessness, but in reality, it is just another mountain to move or wall to break through.
