The film speaks volumes about the importance of inner peace, and it does so by speaking less. There are some beautiful dance sequences with Jiu'er as she prepares to become the goddess and there is a lot of focus on being connected with the people and environment around you. The sense of the loss and grief of our main character is truly felt as we piece together his story bit by bit.
Time is not linear in this film and while that makes for in interesting watch, it is also quite confusing. 'Feelings to Tell' succeeds more in getting its message and morals across than it does in giving us a fully coherent story. It is difficult to tell what is actually going on up in the mountains, you get the feeling that there is a deeper meaning to events but it remains unclear what that actually is.
The film is slow to tell its story, but it’s actually the better for it as it again echos the values of essentially finding your inner peace and serenity. The performances are subtle yet strong throughout and ‘Feelings to Tell’ is enjoyable and relaxing to watch.
