| Holding the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous run of a film in one cinema
My parents were very fond of their childhood memory watching this film, so I looked it up and watched it. The story sets in a time in China when the political crisis has ended, and Chinese immigrants were permitted to return to the country. An American-born girl came to visit for the first time, and while she was visiting the Lushan Mountain, she fell in love with a local student studying for his university entrance exams. They soon began dating on the mountain, visiting the different astonishing attractions the mountain was famous for. The entire film was shot on the mountain itself, and the natural scenery captured by the film are precious documentary as of today for those who are unable to visit the mountain, including myself. The film also incorporates an ideology promoted at that time, to welcome foreign talents to China to help with building the Chinese economy. This is still somehow an ideology endorsed by the Chinese government nowadays. However, what captivated the audience in the film is that it is just a simple love story, and my mother is one of the many fans of this film. The film is also known for holding the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous run of a film in one cinema, the film was premiered in a cinema on the mountain in 1980, and has been showing this film everyday for 38 years, and still showing it nowadays.
