Yi Lan QinQin, I love to watch Mandarin movie especially the classic stories. It sounds very soft. Don't really like Kantonis especially from Hong Kong.

I also likes Iran movies. I have Children of Heaven CD and watched a movie about a woman who let her husband take another wife, but she end up felt jealous of her hubby. Children of Heaven is a very touching story. Now watching Heena from India. Its being aired 1 hr a day. I can see the difference of the way Islam being practiced in other country. The woman didn't cover their feet when they perform solah.

Actually, Children of Heaven is the movie about a brother entering a running competition for 2nd place in order to give new shoes for his younger sisters.
You should watch "Colours of Heaven" available in any SPEEDY outlets. Very touching. It makes me cry!!! :cry: :cry: :cry:
