The running time and the film's static nature will put off some viewers, but the compelling story at its heart has drama to spare.

With virtually a single-camera set-up and absolute attention paid to a woman who survived the horrors of Mao's China, Wang Bing continues his run as one of the world's supreme doc filmmakers.
