Si Shui Liu Nian

Directed by Ho Yim
China, Hong Kong, 1984


In Yim Ho’s ‘’Homecoming,’’ a beautiful, modern woman makes a long visit to the small Chinese village in which she was raised. The air of the film is anything but nostalgic, since its stunning heroine, Shan Shan (Si Qin Gao Wa), has a ruefulness bordering on despondency.
