WHAT'S IT ABOUT

A young boy, Ne Zha, is born from an artifact pearl supplied by the Primeval Lord of Heaven, Yuanshi Tianzun. Born with unique powers, he finds himself as an outcast who is hated and feared. Destined by prophecy to bring destruction to the world, the young boy struggles with what’s good and evil.

    A delightful mix of rich mythology and whimsical children's-style storytelling, Ne Zha is a simply wonderful tale full of rich nuance and emotion. It's an adult story but the occasional moments of slapstick and in-your-face-humour serve to remind you of the emotions in play and it's here the movie truly shines: the emotions of a youth who's told denigratingly what he is who feels spurred on to prove them right; the hopes of overcoming the local loathing; the lesson of putting others first... it's a wonderful and engaging story interspersed with the Chinese mythology tropes that will catch you off guard but leave you spellbound. 4.5/5
