Mandarin (English subtitles)
Northern China in the 1920s. A young peasant girl named Ju Dou is sold into marriage to the sadistic owner of a thriving dye factory who desperately needs a male heir, but she finds comfort in her growing attraction to the old man's sympathetic nephew. Soon, their mutual affection matures into love and a child is born. But as the boy grows up unaware of his true identity, can he escape the web of deceit and frustrated passion which surrounds his family? Ju Dou is a superb, beautifully-crafted melodrama.
