Synopsis

A contemplative Chinese drama set against the spectacular landscape of the Three Gorges region. This Golden Lion-winning film tells the stories of a man and a woman searching for absent spouses in Fengjie, an ancient town on the Yangtze River which is in the process of being demolished and will soon disappear forever in the flooding caused by the controversial Three Gorges dam project. At the same time as offering a moving, humane and thought-provoking portrait of people astray in a world they no longer know, the film also explores the relationship between individuals and their environment and the strange co-existence of man-made squalor with the landscape's natural beauty.
