Qi qiu (original title)
1h 42min | Drama | 20 November 2020 (China)
A family struggles against the conflicting dictates of nature, spirituality, politics, and free will.
This was an excellent movie. I read the facts about it after seeing it and was stunned to find that this was true. Absolutely worth watching. Amazing courage and resilience. Read the Wiki page after you’ve seen the film. This kept me on the edge of my seat. For the movie the film makers added some Stasi aspects which worked well, as there are so many people in the world who really don’t know much about this dark era of German history other than that there was a ‘wall’ between east and west Germany. Younger generations will practically not even have heard of that or remember or know about the huge news event this was worldwide when the wall came down. (The wall = Barbed wire, razor wire and soldiers shooting at you. We should be ashamed in our western societies where we put up walls to this day!! Has nothing about ugliness and meaningless control of citizens been learned???) Watch it. Total suspense from beginning to end.
