“An extraordinary performance by Zhao Tao is the beating heart of Jia Zhang-ke's ambitious, time-jumping, continent-straddling drama.” Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
Set in three periods, this extraordinary tale hinges on the choice made by Shen Tao between her two suitors, a brash, up-and-coming entrepreneur, and a quiet, intense mine worker. The consequences are far-reaching, especially for her son trying to find where he belongs in this changing world. A mesmerising and evocative film.
“A work of soaring ambition and deeply felt humanism.” Variety
