“All I ask is a quiet life together.” These are lines spoken by wife Jiazhen, who, with her husband Fugui, survive the sweep of history in the decades before and during the Cultural Revolution. Embodying both hero and heroine, the couple adapt to ever-changing political realities and reversals of fortune, all while holding down a family. Told with wit and tenderness, this epic melodrama features a powerhouse cast and is directed by one of China’s greatest living directors.
