Mandarin (English subtitles)
One of the many bizarre practices introduced by Mao Zedong's brutal and terrifying rule in China was ‘re-education', which meant making people undertake hard labour in the countryside in order to make them forget ideas unhelpful to the revolution. In this moving film set, in the early 1970s, university students Luo and Ma are packed off to a remote mountain village to work in a mine. But instead of being broken by the experience, the pair try to share their love of French literature and Western classical music with the villagers - and the seamstress they both fall for. Voiced in Mandarin, subtitles in English.
