Before I write anything, I would assume that most of the votes and ratings come from Chinese audience which are quite likely to be the same group of people that has been brain-washed by their contemporary Japanese comic products. So as the consequence of that, Chinese reviews could be over- optimistic and self-condemned at the same time.

The thing is, Chinese reviews are remotely swayed between two extremes- --- it is either a harsh criticism or a fan crush. Unfortunately, it's never rational. The main reason of that could be Chinese comic and animation industry are constantly oppressed by Japan which has dominated Asian market for decades.Thus. whenever Chinese people have an original animation of their own, it will always end up being compared with a Japanese one, meanwhile the reviews and statistics from local market are most likely to be "not good enough". Apparently, It's a slow but powerful progress of diminishing the confidence and creation of Chinese local animation industry, as it will finally strangle the sprout even before it takes the first breath.

If you take an in-depth tour right into the Chinese animation field, you would probably find a land with full house of people that has been colonized and enslaved for so long that they can't even speak their mother tongue. It might not be an exact analogy but the truth is that Chinese animation workers are trying so hard to shed the light which has been shining above their head for so long because they absolutely need a private space to clear their mind then stop the stupid imitation game ASAP. It's rather a question of "what they want to make" much more than "what they are supposed to make"

I was kind of hoping those hard-core animation fans in china would adjust their position after being drowning in Japanese comics for so long. Because they are actually supposed to be the people who can really give some constructive ideas and feedback to reverse the imbalanced situation that china has currently facing. There is scarcely pride or superiority in copycatting Japan's mode, the only way out is to start your own business and be firm about it.

After all, this piece of work deserves more applausive affirmation than biased bashing lashed out by JA sycophant.

Greetings again from the darkness. Animated films from Asia will likely always draw comparisons to the films of Oscar winner Hayao Miyazaki, the Japanese master storyteller behind Studio Ghibli and such animated classics as SPIRITED AWAY, PRINCESS MONOKE, and THE WIND RISES. Some may find it curious to mention Miyazaki when discussing a project from two first time Chinese filmmakers, but their work here is so impressive, the comparison is justified. Not only that, it's quite clear Xuan Liang and Chun Zhang have studied the master's work and are believers in his style.

As with any animated film, success can only be had when both the look and the story hold our attention. Supposedly the film took 12 years to complete, and with its intricate weaving of Chinese culture and tradition, and the dreamy visuals, we understand why. While I don't begin to understand the many references to Chinese mythologies and legends, and most of the classic Chinese literary characters are new to me, the movie has a spellbinding effect that draws us in and leaves us fascinated.

On her 16th birthday, Chun partakes in a rite of passage that involves spending 7 days in the land of humans. See, Chun is from a magical parallel world where "the others" control the human world seasons and tides. And we all know that if one is going to have control over another world, it only makes sense to have a basic understanding of that world and its inhabitants! Chun is transformed into a red dolphin and shoots through a portal into the land of humans. It's there that she is saved by a boy, whose courageous act costs him his own life when he is caught in a vortex. Chun is determined to deliver his life back to him ... remember, she is from a magical world.

The story really takes off from here and becomes an adventure filled with love and sacrifice. We are told "Some fish aren't meant to be caged, because they are meant for the sky", and it's not until the conclusion that we fully understand. Chun's mission has her crossing paths with both the Keeper of Good Souls who lives with more cats than anyone should, and a creepy Rat Lady who is the Keeper of less fortunate souls and commands an army of rats for her dirty work. This game of cat and mouse between the two factions of soul-keepers is but one of the many webs of intrigue presented in the story.As you would expect, these two parallel worlds collide and Chun, her friend Qui, and the hero human who is resurrected as a small fish named Kun are all at the center. Chun must protect Kun for his soul to survive, and this puts her in conflict with her own family who prefer the tradition of keeping the two worlds separate.

"Without happiness, what's the meaning of longevity?" This quote is at the heart of Chun's passion, and in fact, also drives her friend Qui to go above and beyond. A debt to be paid sprinkled with love and attraction adds a personal touch to the otherwise fantastical proceedings. Though the visuals are splendid and enough to keep us engaged, it's the convergence of sky and sea - and Begonia flower power - that move this from a fancy cartoon into a story with depth and meaning. Remarkably, it's the first film for these two filmmakers, though I do hope we mustn't wait a dozen years for their next.

An Amazing MovieReviewed bymikeyang0513Vote: 9/10

I heard about Big fish & begonia (Da Hai) in 2013 and I was shocked by the 5-minute trailer at that time. At first sight I thought it was a Ghibli movie again, but then I learned about that the core story got some inspiration from some ancient Chinese proses, such as "A Leisurely Tour" by Chuang-tzu and ShanHai Jing. As a Chinese, I know I can't describe my feeling perfectly in English, but I just want to say that Big Fish & Begonia (Da Hai) is a very moving and wonderful movie which can make me cry every time. It tells a story about salvation, love and growth. It's totally Chinese, from these good pictures to the touching story. I hope one day the movie can be released in some other countries, so that more and more audience can enjoy its beauty and be moved by it.
