"A symphony in three movements. Starting with a love triangle, Jia Zhang-Ke creates an allegory of a China in identity crisis in his new film." (critic.de)
Like the country itself at the end of the 90s, young Tao is at a crossroads: two men vie for her favor: Jang Yinsheng, runs a gas station and represents the new, capitalist China. Liangzi, toils in a coal mine and embodies the old, communist China.
"Jia Zhangke scales new heights with futurist drama… Exhilarating." (The Guardian)
"Jia is simply one of the best and most important directors in the world." (The New Yorker)
