Review: The Beekeeper and his Son, 2016, dir. Diedie Weng


A movie about a man who keeps bees, his son who keeps books, and the silly generational tiffs that erupt between them on a farm in rural Northern China. Sit on that for a second. Sounds dull as a stone, right? Right! But The Beekeeper and his Son is actually a super interesting film, one that’s fully invested in its subjects and thus more exciting by consequence. I liked it! (Hurrah again for remote viewing festivals!) I will now direct you to The Playlist, which is where my review is posted, and then I will just end this post because I’m more bored by writing this than I was by the movie.
