Finally watched 2007 Jiang Wen film The Sun also Rises. China and Cultural Revolution in magic realism. 2 Indonesian Chinese lovers finally reunited in #Xinjiang on the onset of Great Leap Forward on the eve of their long awaited wedding, prbly the best time of their lives😭😭😭
There's lot of allegory in Jiang Wen's The Sun also Rises. Film begins in 1976, last year of Cultural Revolution, ends in 1958 beginning of the Great Leap Forward. Mom in a way represents China of this era, she went crazy in 1958 and then disappears in 1976...
