This deceptively quiet, deliberately paced character study by Chinese filmmaker Jia Zhangke utilizes the performances of actresses Zhao Tao (Jia’s wife and frequent leading lady) and Sylvia Chang to tell the panoramic tale of an optimistic provincial Chinese woman (Zhao) and her family, caught up in China’s transition from a tradition-bound society to a rootless, materialistic one, over the period of thirty years. It may resemble a soap opera, but its currents run deep. Written and directed by Jia (A Touch of Sin, 24 City), one of the “Sixth Generation” of Chinese directors who came to prominence in the 1990s (131 min.).
