Product Description

Together (Chinese: 和你在一起; pinyin: Hé nǐ zài yīqǐ) is a 2002 Chinese drama film directed by Chen Kaige and starring Tang Yun, Liu Peiqi, Chen Hong, and Wang Zhiwen. The film premiered on September 10, 2002 at the Toronto International Film Festival, and was commercially released in China ten days later. Written by Chen Kaige and Xue Xiaolu, the plot revolves around a thirteen-year-old violin prodigy Liu Xiaochun and his father Liu Cheng who move to Beijing from a small southern town. It is Liu Cheng's biggest dream that Xiaochun may find a good teacher in the city and rise to stardom. After studying under two teachers, however, the boy finds that he has learned not just music, but what is really important in life

(Not ot be confused with another great film of the same name, directed by Chinese master Chen Kaige.)
"Together" is the second film by Lukas Moodysson, who gave us very charming film "Show Me Love." (If you have not seen it, you are just missing a great thing.) Here, Moodysson tackles different theme, a small commune in 1975 in Sweden, in which their ideals are tested by the new members of the place.
The film starts when a mother Elizabeth left her home with two children, Eva and Stefan, because of the perpetual violence of the drunkard husband. Now, the plot sounds heavy, but this film never gets too serious, so we are quickly introduced to the commune named "Together" where many colorful people are living. They are Erik, young radical student whose ideas go ridiculously too far; Anna, feminist turned lesbian who likes meditating; Goran, who is too kind-hearted (or timid) to tell what he realy thinks, Lena, whose idea of Free Love is a real suspect, and others, including a boy Tet (named after the event of the war in Vietnam) who plays with Stefan, doing "mock-torturing."
Now join the distraught wife Elizabeth and Eva and Stefan. The film tells how the commune react to them (and them to the commune) in a light touch, with many episodes. The general tone of the film is that of a well-made comedy, though for American audience some of the contents are very radical (nudity included). It's a Swedish film, after all.
The most impressive part is, like the previous "Show Me Love," the kids.

Together is a sweet and sentimental movie that's appealing as long as you don't expect too much from it. It's beautifully shot by cinematographer Kim Hyung-koo and has its share of heartwarming scenes, but the film is rife with clich'd characters and situations (e.g., the country bumpkin who's a fish out of water in the big city). The film's star, Tang Yun, is reportedly a real-life violin prodigy, which probably helps him seem more credible when his character, Liu Xiachun, plays the violin (although his performances are overdubbed by another violinist). However, the movie doesn't really concern itself with the process of mastering one's craft; indeed, it's unclear what Liu Xiachun learns about music from his teachers. Furthermore, Tang Yun is not the most expressive child actor to ever appear on the screen; his perpetually glazed expression does not make him seem particularly engaging, particularly since his character's behavior becomes increasingly willful as the film progresses. Nonetheless, this is a generally charming movie despite its lack of originality. ~ Todd Kristel, All Movie Guide

Chen Kaige's first Chinese film since the poorly received, Hollywood-produced Killing Me Softly is based on a true story of an adolescent violin prodigy coming of age in Beijing. Raised in a small town, Xiao Chun (Tang Yun) is brought to Beijng by his devoted single father, Lui Cheng (Liu Peiqi), who recognizes his talent and is determined to make him a success.

It is the year 1975 when ABBA and the children TV show "Fem myror är fler än fyra elefanter" (translation: Five ants are more than four than five elephants) was immensely popular in Sweden. Elisabeth has just been beaten up by her husband and she has decided to move to to her brother Göran's with her two children. What makes the film more interesting is that Göran lives in a commune with a wide variety of characters that are rather radical on the left side of politics and openly display opinions and thoughts in regards to anything. At first is Elisabeth is bothered by their openness towards one another, but she realizes that she has no where else to go as a jobless housewife. As time passes Elisabeth becomes not only comfortable, but also begins to form her own notions, which strengthens her.
Together (Tillsammans) is a marvelous and well directed story as it is a kaleidoscope of notions put into action in an environment where love and confrontations belong in the daily routine. Despite the confrontational situations in the film, Moodysson creates a warm atmosphere where one concept overrides all other thoughts, which is that notions are pointless in the absence of company. This results in a warm comedy with serious undertones that offer much food for thought as Moodysson leaves the audience with a brilliant cinematic experience.
