Chen Daoming & Gong Li

Coming Home

Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers) directs this heartbreaking romantic tragedy, which is much more in line with his early social dramas (Raise the Red Lantern, To Live, Not One Less). It's set in the mid-'70s at the tail end of the Cultural Revolution. Lu (Chen Doaming), a college professor and political prisoner, breaks out of a work camp to find his wife (Gong Li) and teenage daughter (Zhang Huiwen)--only to be dragged off by police at the last minute. Years later, Mao is dead, the Revolution is over and our protagonist is freed. Unfortunately, his wife is now suffering from an Alzheimer's-like amnesia. She no longer recognizes him and refuses to believe he's come home after all this time. Determined to kickstart some sort of deja vu, Lu moves in next door. FULL REVIEW: Zhang Yimou directs unforgettable Chinese drama about the power of forgetting by Devin D. O’Leary (10/22/2015). 109 minutes PG-13.
