Plucked from his childhood village, subjected to years of vigorous ballet training and threatened during the Cultural Revolution, Cunxin decides to leave China at great risk to himself and those he loves, for an uncertain future.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
it has power rangers effects but its generally light and an easy watch with like bits of historic inputs, also a bit anti-communist as well but you can get past that considering the all-together softness of the film
as a former ballerina, the lack of ballet clichés in this movie made me love it, also the cinematography was lovely and the dancing was really perfect. cao definitely owns the stage and did a very good job portraying cunxin.
