Little Red Flowers (Chinese: 看上去很美; pinyin: Kàn shàng qù hén měi) is a 2006 Chinese film directed by Zhang Yuan. The film was a co-production between China's Beijing Century Good-Tidings Cultural Development Company LTD and Italy's Downtown Pictures. The Dutch company, Fortissimo Films handled worldwide sales.
The film, based on author Wang Shuo's semi-autobiographical novel, Could Be Beautiful, follows a young four-year old boy, Fang Qiang Qiang, at a kindergarten boarding school. Deposited into a world that demands conformity (rewarded by the titular little red flowers), Qiang suffers for his bullying.
