“Heartbreaking in its depiction of ordinary lives affected by political upheaval, this ode to the fundamental values that survive even under such dire circumstances has an epic gravity that recalls another great historical romance, Doctor Zhivago.” Maggie Lee, Variety. Lu and Feng are a devoted couple forced to separate when Lu is arrested and sent to a labor camp as a political prisoner during China’s Cultural Revolution. He finally returns home only to find that his beloved wife no longer remembers him. This is the latest film from acclaimed Chinese director Yimou Zhang (Hero and House of Flying Daggers).
