Today, we celebrate the one year anniversary of The Nightingale theatrical release, which was China’s official submission to the Academy Awards for best foreign-language film. The internationally critically acclaimed film is a sweet family friendly movie, which appeals to all ages and all walks of life. From a bratty granddaughter to ailing relationships, the film is more than just a train ride across rural China. The film is a modern-day parable on life and happiness, showing how love can be a strong force and unbreakable bond.
The Nightingale has been critically acclaimed by many sources such as The New York Times, SF Gate, and The LA Times. All of whom have given much praise for the movie’s storytelling and prowess. Although the film was produced in China, the film was written and directed by French Director, Philippe Muyl. Along with The Nightingale’s fluid storyline, the strong cinematography of the film is gauging and energetic.
The New York Times states that “The Nightingale demonstrates the ways urbanization has sapped our appreciation of country values and landscape. Mr. Muyl’s unforced direction, coupled with the cinematographer Sun Ming’s lovely images and Armand Amar’s unintrusive musical score, reminds us of what we are missing.”
