Mixing its political and personal themes with passionate urgency, A Family Tour somehow manages to convey desperation and hopefulness simultaneously.
Unflinching, probingly analytical, and fiercely angry.
A Family Tour is the work of someone whose need to reflect on his trauma is urgent enough to risk whatever hope he still has left.
This intelligently affecting story of exile and displacement is Ying Liang's most highly polished film to date.
The script is razor sharp and cuts to the bone of what it means to live in exile. No matter how safe our protagonist feels away from the oppression at home, she still doesn't belong.
Ying sometimes drapes his themes on the surface of his movie rather than integrating them in its visual patterning. Such transgressions only somewhat dilute the plangent and poignant qualities of A Family Tour
The director trusts that his excellent actors, and the fundamental injustice at the heart of the film, are all that he needs to move the audience. And he is right.
The dialogue in A Family Tour is incredible. Yang Shu and Chen Xiaolin are equally stubborn and set in their ways, showing how alike they are, while also causing them never to be on the same page.
Ying Liang's film is righteously and vigorously angry about injustices committed by the Chinese government.
