I do not believe that a beautiful short film such as Shanshui Qing deserves the low score that it has garnered on MAL. Yes, some of you may be right when you say that this is an old Anime, and yes, some of you might be turned off by the general score that this short film has, but I assure you that those things do not mean much in the grander scale of things. This short movie was made in the ancient year of 1988, yes, but the animation is still fluid and the visuals are still beautiful to look at, unlike most of the read more

The joyful tune traversed the serene, painted landscape via a vibration that propagated an audible wave of which cannot be seen, but only heard. The wave of pressure pierced the old sage’s ear drums, alerting him to the presence of a young, vivacious heart who’s spiritual vase had yet to be filled with the wisdoms of the world. But the sage had neither the time nor the willingness to instruct the uncouth adolescent, as he remained steadfast in his cryptic journey.

Yikes. This is probably the silliest user score I've seen on all of MAL. Feelings of Mountains and Waters is an important, masterful film, and it deserves much higher than a 6. Regardless, on to the review.

One of the most beautiful short films ever, Feelings of Mountains and Waters is like a painting come to life. Themes the film explores include the majesty of nature, the wonder of music, the love between a master and an apprentice, and death, all in a completely dialogue free 18 minutes.

Some films just speak for themselves and don't lend themselves very well to review, this is definitely read more

Wei's last work brings together a lot of elements that characterize his filmography and marks his departure from directing animated shorts. A final homage to the Chinese painting, this time in Shan shui style, to the Guqin music, and to the rather common motif of passing along one's virtuosity in favor of self-cultivation. It intends to evoke a nostalgic feeling, a sentiment of longing for what is no more, perhaps serving as a metaphor to his own creative work which ends up serving as both reference and inspiration to any spiritual successor. It can be anything really, insofar as it remains a largely conceptual piece read more
