Thirty Thousand Miles From Chang’an

We went to see 长安三万里 (Chang’An), a movie about Li Bai and other poets, as well as a part of Chinese history. The movie is a beautiful animation though I’m not sure who it’s made for. I guess the cartoonish looks made many parents believe this is for kids, but the dialogue, story & three-hour length didn’t cater to the many kids in the cinema at all. It is a beautiful film though, just very long. (I didn’t always understand the poems cited, but I could often ‘feel’ them.)
