Ching (Tracy Su) is a hand model locked in the throes of post-partum depression, and her marriage to husband A Xiong (Chang Han) hasn't been going well as of late. As the couple wages a noble battle to salvage their failing union, Niu Jiao (Jack Gao) fixes statues of Buddhist deities and drives them to local religious celebrations to the delight of reverent worshippers across Thailand. Meanwhile, young runaway Xian (Jonathan Chang) attempts to support himself by stealing and winning various eating competitions, and aboriginal carver Biung does his best to avoid the bottle as his fierce daughter Savi prepares to study kickboxing in Taiwan. As each of these characters valiantly battle to stabilize their turbulent lives, their paths begin to cross in a series of curious ways. ...God Man Dog ( Liu lang shen gou ren )

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing film 22 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
Bought on a whim ... what a truly fantastic find. Though the similarities to Amores Perros are evident, this is a far more lyrical film about what it means to be human. A couple who have just lost a baby, an invalid and a young boy both homeless, a drunk and his boxing daughter - all find that their lifes are tied and effect each other in quite significant ways. The visiuals are great, the music astonishng - my first thoughts were why can't Hollywood (and indeed the UK) make movies as good as this. Even better on second viewing as you can chart the progress of the characters, who you find yourself caring about, more deeply. if the ending is a tad open-ended, is does allow the viewer to draw their own conclusions. A belter of a movie and needs a wider audience.
