Veteran director Yimou Zhang helms this enduring love story starring
Ziyi Zhang (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) as Zhao Di, a young country
girl who falls head over heels for the village's new schoolteacher, Luo
Changyu (Hao Zheng), in 1950s China. The couple's demure courtship is
cut short when the new communist government summons Luo to the city for
questioning during the Cultural Revolution, leaving Zhao to wait
longingly for his return.
Zhao Di is without a doubt a beautiful actress with the most incredible eyes. You don't need to know the language to see her emotions. In fact, there isn't a great deal of dialogue in this film. It is far more visual than audible.
I highly recommend this movie.
