Back to 1942 directed by Feng Xiaogang

















I was at home this morning and saw on CCTV a discussion about the new film Back to 1942 directed by Feng Xiaogang.  The discussion involved political opinions by Victor Gao (about how much Chang Kai Shek knew about the famine), aesthetic comments by Raymond Zhou from China Daily ("he has stripped the movie of all commercial and entertainment elements... this is a movie that makes you think...") and an assessment from film-maker Emily Liu ("there are hopes for the overseas market").  I will look out for this film when it comes to London.
