A first step away from the typical political propaganda
The literal translation of the title of this film is: the Beach.
This movie made in the early era of the reforms in China is one of first that moved away from the typical political propaganda that dominated Chinese films for so long. The plot revolves around the beach and it is a drama, not the common political propaganda issues such as boosting productivity or upholding Party principles. Although the drama was not as good as those in the west, but this film still deserves some credit for bringing in something new in the Chinese film industry.
