Based on the 2000 semi-autobiographical novel of the same title by Dai, the film revolves around two young Chinese boys of bourgeois background who were sent to a remote village in Sichuan province for three years of re-education during the Cultural Revolution. They both fell in love with a beautiful local girl, granddaughter of an old tailor and known to everyone as the Little Seamstress. During those years of intellectual oppression, the three found solace and liberation in a collection of banned translated novels by Western authors, among whom their favourite was Balzac. The film explores the themes of youth, love, and freedom in those dark times in China. Add Synopsis In Portuguese

The story was good, but the end was a bit weird and unexpected (as it's often the case in chinese movies). I liked the love story, but I sometimes didn't understand the characters, which is a bit sad. Anyway, the actors are great and the music is beautiful. It gave me a new view of Balzac's work, which is very beautiful indeed, and shows the condition of people at that period of time, so I think it's really interesting. It's not exactly the movie to watch if you want to have fun, but it's good!
