A commentary on pre-communist China
21 February 2001 | by (Rice University) – See all my reviews

This film was made in 1949 just as the communists were taking over China. It was mostly filmed under the nationalist government, but one can definitely find traces of communist ideaology in the film. With a hopeful look towards communism, "Crows and Sparrows" is definitely worth seeing to understand the Chinese spirit of this time.
