Short NYFF reviews ALL ABOUT MY SISTERS and Haruhara-san’s Recorder



Filmmaker Wang Qiong interviews her sisters and films their lives. In an epic three hour look into the lives of several women in China.  This is a good but long film  that I in all honesty had to break up into several parts. I liked that the film opened my facets of life in China I had not considered.

Worth a look for the patient.

Haruhara-san’s Recorder

Impressionistic portrait of the life of a woman in Japan. Great looking film is going to work best for those who like deliberate measured films that you have to work with.

I loved the look of the film but I never connected to it emotionally.
