Cinematographer Gu Changwei makes his directorial debut with this intimate family drama set in late-1970's China. As the Cultural Revolution winds to a close, an ordinary family comes together to reflect on the changes that time has wrought. For Weihong (Zhang Jingchu), a chance encounter with a group of paratroopers inspired her to seek a job in the air force, though her application led nowhere. For Weigu (Feng Li), the chance to operate a modest fast-food stall provided a needed escape from childhood's cruelties. Gu's camera captures the subtle moments in his characters lives with a precision and honesty that is quietly heartbreaking. Winner of The Jury Grand Prix - Silver Bear at the 55th Berlin International Film Festival. In Mandarin with English Subtitles. Requires a multi-standard (PAL/NTSC) DVD player, or a region-free or region 2 compatible player with a multi-standard (PAL/NTSC) television.
