Chen Kaige's TOGETHER
Movie review by Dennis D. McDonald
A rural, small town father takes his 13 year old son, a violin prodigy, to Beijing to seek fame and fortune. Along the way they meet a series of interesting characters and the movie audience is treated to a farfetched story rescued by wonderful acting and great emotional strength. It’s corny but very, very appealing.
