YesAsia Editorial Description
In the autumn of 1988, Yu Hong (Hao Lei) moves from her provincial hometown to Beijing to begin her studies. Feisty, pensive, and emotional, Yu Hong develops a passionate, but troubled relationship with classmate Zhou Wei (Guo Xiaodong, An Empress and the Warriors), the man whom she holds briefly but loves for a lifetime. The late 80s are exciting and idealistic times for the students of Beijing, exploding in 1989 in a wave of fervent hope and devastated tears. After Tiananmen, Zhou Wei moves to Germany, and Yu Hong returns to her hometown, the first of many stops as she wanders from city to city and man to man, trying to come to terms with her restless heart.

Director : Lou Ye
Lou Ye's sprawling epic Summer Palace follows Yu Hong (Hao Lei), a rebellious young woman from a small Chinese town transplanted to a politically charged Beijing University in the late 1980s. The country's social turmoil is witnessed through its disaffected youth, whose newfound sexuality and activism culminate in violent suppression. Spanning nearly 20 years of Chinese history. Summer Palace projects the country's struggle for definition through the eyes and heart of a young woman ill-equipped to handle it. While drifting between the arms of two different men, her love fervent for both, Yu Hong's existential crisis mirrors that of her nation.

Director You's Masterpiece
|One of a spate of recent movies from China which examine the changes going on in the country as it moves out of the long shadow of its past. Both the values of three millennia of Chinese heritage and the recently-acquired Marxist/Maoist approach to society are being jettisoned in deference to modernization, whatever eventual form that might take. What has come about is in no way a smooth and certain transition to a better future. With little or nothing of the past left to cling to, people struggle, sometimes together and sometimes in isolation (and sometimes seemingly both simultaneously), toward an unknown, unpredictable future. "Summer Palace", in my estimation, captures time and place as masterfully as any film of my acquaintance. Sweeping events are caught not on a mural of gigantic proportion but with a succession of intimate canvases, each deftly executed with just the right amount of detail, even if what is communicated might be negative or ambiguous. A beautiful achievement and one which earned the director and producer lengthy government-decreed bans from working in their country, a country for which they obviously care deeply. Makes a suitable companion piece to "Lost in Beijing", "Platform", "Shower", "Still Life", and even the more openly comic "Getting Home".|
