Plot: Eve & the Fire Horse follows two young sisters, Eve and Karena, as they attempt to reverse a series of misfortunes that have befallen their family. It all starts when their mother, played by Vivian Wu, chops down an apple tree in their backyard, a Chinese taboo that sets off a series of tragic events. Eve tries to seek comfort in her active imagination, but Karena believes the solution to their troubles lies in something more divine: Catholicism. Before long, crucifixes and Buddhas coexist in the Eng household as Karena embraces Catholicism with open arms and embarks on a path to premature sainthood. Inventive Eve, however, combines Catholic and Buddhist doctrines, creating her own uniquely fantastic belief system. Making her feature film debut, Julia Kwan gives us a touching tale of how one child uses her creativity to comprehend religion. When Eve envisions Jesus and Buddha waltzing together, we find it completely endearing and see how easily wide-eyed innocence can blur the lines between religion and fantasy. Highlighted by delightful performances from first-time actresses Phoebe Jojo Kut and Hollie Lo, the film takes us on one girl's spiritual and poignant journey as she discovers just how marvelously bewildering childhood, family life, and religion can be.
