One word that no one would ever use to describe Chinese director Zhou Sun is "prolific". His new film, Qiu Xi, slated to hit theaters in China on October 14th, is his first since 2002's Zhou Yu's Train. Will it be worth the wait? The new posters and stills from CriEnglish and CriOnline give me hope.
Synopsis: The story takes place in wartime Guangzhou before the country's liberation by the Communist Party of China in 1949. A young woman named Qiu Xi is a "boat person", or Tanka, living in the coastal area of Guangdong Province. Qiu Xi, played by actress Jiang Yiyan (Nanking, Nanking), becomes a servant to Yan Haiqing, played by actor Guo Xiaodong (Summer Palace, An Empress And The Warriors). She finds herself falling for the undercover communist agent who works with the Kuomintang regime that ruled China until 1949. The story unfolds as the two fall for each other but are kept at distance because of the wartime situation.
