One of China's foremost directors, Wang Xiaoshuai (Beijing Bicycle) has created a moving coming-of-age tale set in the final days of China's Cultural Revolution. 11-year-old Wang lives with his family in a remote village in Guizhou province. Life is tough, but they make the most of what little they have. When Wang is selected to lead his school in their daily gymnastics, his teacher recommends that he wear a clean, new shirt, which forces his family to make a great sacrifice. Soon after, Wang has a strange encounter with a wounded, desperate man - a man on the run. In no time the fates of Wang and the fugitive are intertwined.

This powerful film captures what it feels like to be a child on the cusp of teen-hood. Of course it has the unique backdrop of China in the 70's during the cultural revolution which adds depth. A naturalistic, moving, well-made movie.

Time travel back to a land of political conflicts in Southwest China in the late 70's and the vanity coming-of-age experience of a 11-year-old Gym leader unfolded in a foggy fashion.

A beautiful movie! Looks like a Chinese version of To Kill A Mocking bird. Wang Xiaoshuai is one great director.
