An interesting look at the lives of the poor and impoverished kids and how a girl just a few years older becomes their teacher. Her journey to bring back one of her students (more for her benefit, but whatever).

Yimou scales down -- down from _Shanghai Triad_, way down from _To Live_, down even below _The Story of Qiu Ju_, with which this film shares something in common, namely a comically resolute heroine: an ill-equipped thirteen-year-old substitute teacher who treks from a mountain village to the big city, to retrieve a primary-school dropout. A film of extreme simplicity, even somewhat scrimping simplicity, with a cast of nonprofessionals and a consequent stiffness of performance.

Could have been great, but wow does this movie drag at times. And it is very hard to feel empathy for any of the characters.

I usually don't like movies where the primary actors are children, and I've been underwhelmed by Zhang Yimou before, but this was utterly charming.

I think the best thing a director can do when directing young children is basically to make them forget that they're acting in a movie. Zhang succeeds admirably at bringing this about in Not One Less. There's not a single cringe-worthy, poorly delivered line from any of the children in this movie. You could easily see this story being made into a major Hollywood tear-jerker. The ending in particular is a classic tug at the heart strings in the best Spielbergian tradition.
