Synopsis

Gao Chun, a young captain, steers his cargo boat up the Yangtze river. His father has recently died and, according to his beliefs, his son is now responsible for liberating his soul. At the same time, Gao Chun is looking for the love of his life.

Our take

Cinematographer Mark Lee Ping-bing (In the Mood for Love) deservedly took home an award from Berlin for his gorgeous 35mm photography in Chao Yang’s beguiling and deeply romantic drama. Poetic and richly evocative, life’s quest for contentment finds a great allegory in this river journey.
