Director Bo Hu's (29) first and last film. He committed suicide shortly after completing post, and cited this quote from All The Pretty Horses as inspiration for the film:

he thought that the world’s heart beat at some terrible cost and that the world’s pain and its beauty moved in a relationship of diverging equity and that in this headlong deficit the blood of multitudes might ultimately be exacted for the vision of a single flower.

I haven't seen it yet, but just watching the trailer and reading about it made me very emotional and sad.

The running time made me back away from this.  Anybody want to take one for the team?
