Gu Xiaogang / CN, 2019 / 150 min.

Gu Xiaogang’s feature film debut was screened at major international festivals, attracted major audiences in France, yet didn’t get a Dutch release. This calmly and exactingly directed film depicts a rural Chinese family coping with the vagaries of life. Nationwide Dutch release.
