Great movie

Watch on Netflix. Movie explores ancient Chinese foot binding and Laotung (sisters for eternity) ritual. I throughly enjoyed this movie because it gives the viewer a window into Chinese culture from an ancient and modern perspective and shows the common thread that love is timeless. Laotung - sisters for life is a tribute to sisterhood and it's importance to us going forward.
