Snow Flower and the Secret Fan
Reviewed by Julie Gorst
I wouldn't normally go and see this type of film, but I was glad I did.
It was a Chinese film but did have some English spoken parts but it did also have subtitles.
It was a warm feeling film about a bond between friends and sister hood.. about the love friendship they had for each other.
It was such a lovely film it even made me cry!!! It might not be to everyone's taste but if you watch it I guarantee you will shed a tear.
A secret language shared by two Chinese women sustains their friendship and love throughout their lives in ‘Snow Flower and the Secret Fan’.
