Rosewood with Noble Character

Mr Gu Yongqi, born in Nantong in Jiangsu province, is lauded as China's No.1 carpenter in Chinese antique furniture. He has overcome many technical problems including crack, deformation, and breakage in rosewood artefacts that existed in the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasty, and has uncovered the secret to allow a tiny space for wood shrinkage and expansion in rosewood furniture. To quote Wang Shixiang, a well-known collector in China, as saying, "Mr Gu's artefacts are smoother than jade, milder than anything that you ever felt, and silkier than the skin of teenage maidens." His work has already been regarded as part of the world's best luxury. Mr Gu has built a team of dedicated artisans, who have consistently adhered to the principle of delicacy, precision and exquisiteness. The film, based on the story of Gu Yongqi, took a total of three years to complete. It is a vivid display of the diligent and enterprising Chinese people who are striving for perfection at work. More broadly, it is also a reflection of the unique Chinese culture and the philosophy of Chinese nationals as a whole.

Freaking awesome… is the adjective which I choose to type the first word of this review. As I left the theater I was not only spellbound, but I was also sulking about the fact that the movie had ended.
