Pioneer in the political liberalization
15 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

The literal translation of the title of this film is Little Flower.

Unlike the ordinary political propaganda of the Cultural Revolution era, this movie is a pioneer in liberalization by describing the simply personal relationships of a girl fall in love with the wounded soldier she and her mom took care. The elimination of the political ideological lecturing such as girl wakening up and rise to the cause of revolution that was typical in the movies of that era put this film ahead of other similar Chinese films.
