Taking Father Home

A young boy from a far flung Sechuan village sets out to the city of Zigong looking for his father who abandoned his family six years ago. His sole companions are two ducks that he plans to use in stead of money. And on his journey he runs in to goons, cops who in their own ways nudge him towards his destination. The film heralds the arrival of Liang Ying in to the film industry and is shot with a cheap hand held camera with a cast and crew made up of Ying's friends and relatives. A film that I desperately wanted to like however it totally failed to engage.
