It's a pity that films like this simply don't get made in the West. Using a cast of non-actors (school children in the film are school children in real life, the mayor is a mayor in real life etc.), Yimou makes a film that is both moving and shocking.
'Not One Less' is almost documentary-like, and, if it wasn't for the beautiful cinematography (Yimou's use of colour is, as always, gorgeous), you could be forgiven for thinking it was, such is its down-to-earth style.
Definitely worth buying.
