Don't miss the significant break through that is hard to see
The literal translation of the title of this movie is: Long Live Youth.
This movie made in the early era of reform in China had carefully and subtly explored something that was alway avoided in Chinese culture, incest rape. This subtle approach was difficult to see because it was disguised in the form of depicting the era before the revolution.
Since it was just barely more than half a decade before the end of the Cultural Revolution, the film crew understandably took a very cautious approach on this extremely sensitive topic by eulogizing the post revolutionary era regime and criticizing the old regime. Nonetheless, it was a significant small step toward facing the reality.
