Excellent movie that is forgotten in the rapid economic growth
The literal translation of the title of this film is: Night Rain of Mount Ba.
Ba Mountain range is at the eastern part of the Si-Chuan province, the most populous province in China and it suffered greatly in the era of Cultural Revolution. This movie is a masterpiece of introspection on Cultural Revolution and a pioneer of reforms, but it is forgotten in the rapid economic expansion because what this movie criticized and advocated had already accomplished in the reforms. However, the movie still had its place consider the time it was made, in the early era of reform.
