History are finally faced as the way it really was.
The literal translation of the title of this movie is: Dr. Zhong-Shan Sun (Dr. Yat-Sen Sun).
The importance of this Chinese movie is that it is a small step toward acknowledge the history as it really happened. In the Cultural Revolution, a historical figure is simplified either a God, like Dr. Sun, or a devil, like Jing-Wei Wang. In reality, it is never that easy because a person can do something good in his early years and turn bad later on, such as the case of Jing-Wei Wang. The contribution of Jing-Wei Wang to Dr Sun's revolution in his early years was thus willfully ignored in China, and this movie made a very first step in recognize his accomplishments, starting the process of treating historical figures as people, instead of simplifying them as God or devils.
