Spring in a Small Town
Dir. Tian Zhuangzhuang (2002). Zhuangzhuang’s most intimate movie is a poignant, exquisitely-crafted chamber drama of indefinable moods and subtle emotional coloration—and, behind the mist of unfulfilled yearnings, a suggestion of political allegory. Made from a 1948 movie widely regarded as a masterpiece, this is a wonderful film in its own right—perhaps the finest expression of the Chinese new wave.
