ejonline's rating of the film Hua yang de nian hua

This is a very short (2.5 minutes) collection of vintage Chinese images. The clips are drawn from numerous movies that clearly share the same narrative structures and visual grammar, so they actually work to create something like a coherent piece. Fun to look at, especially for the fashion and the music, but ultimately it seems just like a lark.
