So Long, My Son 12A

An epic tale in scope that tells the story of two families over the course of 30 years...

Dir: Wang Xiaoshuai China 2019 3hrs 5mins Subtitled


The film charts the fortunes of factory workers Liyun (Yong Mei) and Yaojun (Wang Jingchun), a couple reeling from a devastating family tragedy during the tumultuous years between the 1980s and the 21st century. Constricted by the one-child national policy, their lives are gradually transformed under the impact of the country’s changing identity, building to a heartbreaking revelation that exposes how political reality affects the fates of the family and the people around them. 

A cleverly poetic depiction of communist China, So Long, My Son, is a sprawling yet personal portrait of human resilience, featuring incredibly tender and award-winning performances from Mei and Jingchun.
