Reviews - What do customers think about China Cry?
Based on a true story Sep 3, 2003
The acting is great. And Julia Nickson-Sole is convincing as Sung.
You can see what is happening in degrees as she phased out of her cushy surroundings. She actually tries to comply with the new environment and approves of it. Then the government helps her to learn about the Christianity by accusing of going to a Christian school as a child. She tries to explain that she only went to the school and that did not make her Christian. The unbending government makes her suffer until in her confusion she turns to Christianity in hopes of a cure for the situation.
China Cry Oct 22, 2002
Great movie. Gives a new perspective on life as a Christian outside of the US. Very inspiring, I'd have to say it's somewhat life changing. Highly recommend for every Christian
