Directed by Peng Xiaolian
The plight of Chinese
women seen from a woman's point of view. A poignant tale of three peasant
women who flee their village to taste freedom in the big city and escape
the sexist oppression of rural China. Praised for its feminist viewpoint,
Berenice Reynaud calls it "the very stuff every modern woman's life is
made of." Special Jury Prize, Paris Women's Film Festival. Mandarin with
English subtitles. 96 minutes.
