The King of Masks

I just finished watching a movie that I think most people haven't heard of. Its called "The King of Masks", and its an incredibly powerful story about an elderly street performer who lost his only son, and now has no heir. His craft, an ancient art poorly translated as "Change Masks", is stunningly visualized in the film. Unfortunately tradition states that he is only to pass along his craft to an heir... a son. He buys a son on the street, but finds out his new son has a secret. The story is well told, and the movie is excellent. I originally saw it at the Clinton-Macomb library booksale on VHS, but declined to pick it up. Later, at the library, I saw they had the DVD of the film, and borrowed it. I'm very glad I did, as this movie is excellent. Highly rated.
