Postmen in the mountains

This one movie from China I like a lot. Postmen in the Mountains is the story of a retiring rural postman who is passing on his responsibility of delivering mail to his young son. The son is not so excited about his career as a postman. The father makes one last trip to accompany his son for his first trip accompanied by their dog. The whole trip lasts a couple of days as they travel on foot through picturesque areas and minority regions. Every time, I watch this movie, some bitter-sweet saddings happen as I have been to some such places in China. And I have met funny, cute and generous people like the ones in the movie.

Sadding is another word used by a friend in China. She will always ask if life is sadding, happying or boring.
