Critic Reviews powered by Metacritic ™

A simple, low-budget, contempo dramedy -- with plenty of clever plot reversals. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
This new picture will reach only a few devoted American spectators. That's too bad, because once you get used to the apparent flatness and emotional reserve of this picture, it's a sad, slyly comic tale of family trauma and reconciliation that packs a wallop. Full Review

Washington Post
It's a masterful little film, and, thanks to Zhang's seasoned hands, it's subtly heartfelt but never manipulative. Full Review
G. Allen Johnson
San Francisco Chronicle
Although "Riding" is a small-scale movie as opposed to a big-scale epic, it is just as ambitious. Full Review

Zhang Yimou is a master of intimate character pieces. Full Review
