This film is about Xi'er, played by Tian Hua in her first role (pretty cool fact: She is in a movie this year, 62 years later!). Xi'er is a daughter of a farmer, and she falls in love with Dachun. Xi'er's father is a tenant farmer and when he cannot repay the debt (by unfair means), Xi'er is given to the landlord as an indentured servant. Xi'er's father dies and Dachun joins the Red Army. Xi'er looks to escape to escape this fate and escape the landlord's home, where she toils rather to the point of exhaustion. Two questions are answered in the film which cannot be answered here: The first is: Does Xi'er re-meet Dachun? and What is the significance of the White Hair Girl? The film is not by any means perfect and my copy was not very well restored, but the universal themes of young love, good vs evil and perseverance of the will are all here. Its been re-made, this appears to be the black and white original. It was watchable, and has the air of a folktale, which made it pretty appealing.
