So Long, My Son
Winner of both the best actor and best actress awards at the Berlin International Film Festival, SO LONG, MY SON... Winner of both the best actor and best actress awards at the Berlin International Film Festival, SO LONG, MY SON traces the lives of two families over three decades of social, political and human upheaval in China. Yaoyun and his wife Liyun were once a happy family – until their son drowned playing by a reservoir. Leaving the hometown with deep sorrow, they plunge into a city in southern China, where nobody knows them and they cannot even understand the local dialect. Their adopted son Liu Xing does not offer them the comfort they had hoped for either. The married couple are repeatedly enmeshed in their memories. Finally, they decide to return to the site of their lost hopes. The film chronicles people and a society in full transformation - in which human relationships and the tumultuous evolution of a nation are inevitably and inextricably intertwined. More
