FNC '19 One of the year's best. Wang Xiaoshuai's latest is an intimate epic looking at life in China over a near forty year period through the eyes and experiences of a close knit group of friends. The non-linear storytelling plays in the films favour and works with tight scripting and excellent casting and players. It's 3 hour runtime burns away quickly and one becomes deeply moved by events and story.
Some friends in Taiwan had negative opinions about this film. I actually quite liked it. If there was something to be said, it would perhaps have been regarding how certain elements in the narrative would too conveniently take place to serve the story. But the actors are fantastic, and the three hours + running time passed by in a wink. Humane and generous.
