Synopsis:
Often cited as one of the masterpieces of Chinese cinema, 'The Spring River Flows East' is an epic and tragic melodrama set in Shanghai and Chungking around the time of the Second Sino-Japanese War. Part one, 'Eight War-Torn Years', tells the heart-rending story of a working-class couple, Sufen (Bai Yang) and Zhang Zhongliang (Tao Jin), whose marriage is torn apart when the war forces Zhongliang to flee from Shanghai to Chungking. Part two, 'The Dawn', sees Zhongliang return to Shanghai. His fortunes transformed, he has married into a wealthy bourgeois family but his world is undone by a chance meeting with the now-destitute Sufen.
