Bonjour,

L'envoi a été rapide et soigné. Merci beaucoup! C'est juste dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de version française disponible...

Zhang Yimou knows how to tell a story so well - he has such a personal way of making you feel so much for his characters.

The father and mother are just outstanding, and the story of their children is simply amazing -- the daughter "Fengxia" is wonderfully portrayed. The people are all so sweet really.

I highly recommend his movie because it tells the struggles of this family so well, you care about them and hope they survive all the changes happening around them.

The acting is first rate, and gets a wonderful taste of China's recent history.

SPOILER
The storytelling is so well done, and you care about the family so much; the tragic parts are extremely hard to watch.

I have shown this film to my English students after having read Dai Sijie's book, BALZAC AND THE LITTLE CHINESE SEAMSTRESS, because of the portrayal of communism and the effects of the Chinese "cultural revolution". While it at first appears to be loaded with communist propoganda, it becomes apparent by the end of the film that it is an outspoken criticism of Mao and this harsh period of recent Chinese history.
Aside from the political overtones, this is also a masterful study of overcoming loss and adversity that transcends cultural or political boundaries. While my students almost invariably complain about the subtitles at the beginning of the showing, by the end, they have been completely drawn in, and are laughing and crying on cue. If this isn't the true test of a great flick, I don't know what is.
A masterpiece, and one that everyone should see.

To Live is a masterful project and deserves the best praises for foreign cinema. It touches every emotion possible in its depiction of one family's faults and successes; life as it might have been in the midst of political chaos. To Live maps the losses and gains of Fugui and Jiazhen--an average young couple moving through China. It's difficult to discuss the turns and movement without spoiling the movie. However, I will say the couple we encounter in the 1940s and end with in the 1960s is triumphant and tells a story never to be forgotten. Highly Recommended!!!!!!

This film was pretty interesting. I'm not sure that I would say moving or masterful, but interesting nevertheless. On the one end it seems somewhat of a propaganda film. On the other end, it clearly shows that the Chinese are able to look back with some criticism on the cultural revolution and other surrounding events. There was one disconnection though that seemed kind of obvious and awkward to me - in particular the father's transition from sorry gambler to family man and upstanding citizen. Of course, this may have to do with the theme of survival. Perhaps he had to change his ways in order to survive, and ultimately to live. But here I didn't think that there was a lot of flow in the film. Anyway, all that aside...the film was interesting and worthy of a recommendation.

Fugui loses everything in gambling, which leads to his wife Jiazhen leaving him. He then loses all his possessions and his father dies. In shame he has to move into the slums and begin a new life that demands that he stop gambling and begin to take responsibility for himself and those whom he cares about. Slowly he regains some value in his life as his wife returns with his children and he begins a new life as a puppeteer. To Live brings Fugui through 40 years of happiness and pain as he is experiencing the bliss and troubles of life. In the end, Zhang leaves the audience with a terrific cinematic experience, which offers both tragedy and humor as life does to us all.

This is among the greatest of Asian films. It received two Cannes Film Festival awards (Grand Jury Prize and Best Actor). Its director has been previously nominated for an Oscar. If you enjoy a good melodrama or want to see an authentic viewpoint about Mao Zedong's Communist China, see this movie...
