Set in Fenyang, Shanxi Province, the film focuses on a group of amateur theatre troupe performers whose fate mirrors that of the general population in China as massive socio-economic changes sweep across the mainland. The film commences in 1979 with the troupe performing numbers idolizing Mao Zedong, ending in the '80s when the shows reflect the strong Western influences pervading China, covering a decade in which China saw tremendous changes.

80's is a unforgotten age of chinese,compare with "xiao wu"(director's last movie),i prefer Zhantai.It is all about 80's,its music,its live,and of courses,the people who live in that age.those 10 years,is a period of great change happened in China.With reform&open,many things changed,the life changed eventually,and something we lost also.Being a chinese,i am lucky for living through that decent.and had seen the great improvement in China,but at the same time,we lost sth.that worth to miss. And i doubt why it is a french movie,though i know it is the fund from france.but it is totally chinese,totally made by chinese,and all about our history and our individual in the age. All above,it is excellent.
