From the very first shot, excellently directed. This film, without a word of comment needed, made clear with enormous punch how the Chinese form their society. A four year old is dumped into a huge new world without a kiss, a cuddle or any concession at all. He must conform to the group and if he doesn't he is lost. And not just Chinese society: this rings a bell in Western life too. And how did they get that delightful little boy to act like that?
