Under the Hawthorn Tree (Shan zha shu zhi lian) Reviews

April 4, 2011
[Zhang Yimou] delivers between flashy epics, this tender, understated romancer touches the heart with a disarming, almost stealthy sweetness.

Zhang skillfully tells an emotionally compelling love story that focuses on the deep injustices of the Cultural Revolution era. It's probably his most emotionally resonant film since To Live.

While it's a minor work from Zhang I still enjoyed it.
