Winner of Best Film and Best Director at the Hong Kong Film Awards, and sumptuously shot by Yu Lik-Wai, Hui’s low-key wartime epic follows a schoolteacher (Zhou Xun, in one of her richest performances) who finds herself almost casually recruited to join the Communist resistance to Japanese occupation. Eschewing the bombast typical of heroic histories, Hui foregrounds the ordinariness of her characters, handling even the action sequences with a matter-of-factness that undercuts the requisite mythologising. Featuring an evocative score by long-term Miyazaki collaborator, Joe Hisaishi. With Deannie Ip.
