Something of black humor covering youngsters' growing pain during the historical period of Cultural Revolution
4 May 2002 | by (Shanghai China) – See all my reviews

It is not only a time for people over 40 years old in China to recall, but a touching story for everybody to get moved - a vivid reflection of the impulse and passion of teenagers in that restive years of Cultural Revolution of China. Lots of pain but always a time to remember. Salutation to Director Jiang Wen, who remains also the top contemporary actor in China.
