Ding Jiancheng, long time collaborator with Zhang Yimou, directs this contemplative work set during the Cultural Revolution. A young teenaged boy (Chen Ying) starts paying an unhappy old man who makes paper horses out of propaganda posters. The old man still grieves the death of his daughter, while the teen longs for some human connection. This film was screened at the 2000 Rotterdam Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
