Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: The Road Home yields its pleasures slowly, opening in wintry black and white before ripening into a miracle.
- Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News, Thursday, June 7, 2001
Fresh: This is a film that rescues love from the world of clich and treats it with the awakening passion it deserves.
- Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News, Thursday, June 21, 2001
A really sweet, heartwarming, simple sort of love story. Chinese mysticism meets Hans Christian Anderson sugar. Reminds me of my road home.

A true Romantic Film Here might even be considered a Chick Flick by some. Its about a man in China who is called home to bury his father, who was the village school teacher, so begins the novel as to how he met the man's mother who was a village girl who fell in love with the teacher at first sight. Not the typical American Love story, its better then that. Got to give it 5 Stars,

A simple, gentle but very effective film. Beautifully shot and wonderfully acted The Road Home captures perfectly the sweet melancholy of returning home. A brilliant relationship is brought to life in the most simple ways but they work. A calm and collected film that knows how to tell it's story.
