This movie was banned in by the nationalist government
5 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie was labeled by communists as "progressive" and by the nationalists government as "reactionary".

The movie gives a realistic depiction of the destitute of those who lived at bottom of the society, which could be viewed as a combination of The Wrath of the Grapes and A Tree in Brooklyn, Chinese version: the live was harsh at the countryside so they went to join the relatives in the cities, only to find the urban life is equally harsh due to unemployment and layoffs.

The movie has absolutely no political motives, just a plain simple depiction of the harsh post World War II living conditions in China, but when the communists and nationalists were at war, the movie is interpreted as their own will and resulted in its tragic fate.
