So Long, My Son

A sad Chinese story

(Edit) 07/12/2020

This is one of those worthy films one thinks one ought to see, showing the harsh impact of the one child policy on a well meaning couple of workers in the face of their more cynical and selfish friends who do more than go along with the regime. It is vivid picture of how people lived in China 30 years ago and perhaps many who cannot easily adapt still do. But it is slow and a little confusing with time changes which are not clearly indicated and I was more bored than entertained, and not very moved.
