| A good film of post-revolution era that describes the pre-revolution era
What gives this post-revolution era film a high score is that it is one of the earliest of the films shot in China that describes the pre-revolution era without any political bias and propaganda, a trend most could not escape.

The literal translation of the title actually is: Old stories of the southern part of the city.

For centuries, Beijing was consisted of three parts, the rich northern part of the town was consisted of northeastern part where aristocrats and royalties mainly resided, and the northwestern part where well to to merchants and landlords mainly resided. The southern part, an area that is equal in size of the northeastern and northwestern parts combined, is the place where most middle class and lower class resided. The story was told in the experience of a little girl of southern part of the city.
