In The Nightingale, Zhigen (Bao Tian Li) honors the request of his late wife by going back to his home town to free his bird, his sole companion in his senior years. He expected to go on this journey alone but he has been entrusted with Renxing (Xin Yi Yang), his granddaughter, a young spoiled city girl from Beijing, while her parents are out of town. This constraint becomes a welcome diversion on his mission. During this journey at the edge of traditional China, in all its magnificent natural landscapes, these two individuals will discover one another and share experiences and adventures. The little girl will discover new values, particularly the ones of the heart, and the importance of family and tradition.

In the timeless tradition of Ozu and reminiscing of Zhang Yimou's Riding Alone for 1000s Miles, director Philippe Muyl (Butterfly) brings this familiar story of inter-generational conflict and reconciliation to the age of iPhone and tablets, with a slight French accent. Endearing cast and amazing scenery of Guang Xi province with its stately covered bridges and ancient banyan trees @ Yang Shuo.

Extraordinary filming of all the beauty of the country side of China. I fell in love with the boldness of each of the family members; especially the grandfather. This film had me thinking of family ties and how important they are in the development of each person on this planet. Loved this film!!
