Chinese Film Classics: Myriad of Lights / Along the Sungari River



Directors: Shen Fu (Myriad Of Lights), Jin Shan (Along The Sungari River)
DOUBLE FEATURE

MYRIAD OF LIGHTS: This tale of familial warfare and sacrifice takes place in hard-pressed Shanghai at the end of the 1940s. Hu Zhiqing can barely support his wife and children, and his situation is worsened by the unexpected arrival of his mother, brother and sister-in-law. When he is fired by his unscrupulous boss, the whole family becomes embroiled in one emotional/economic struggle after another.

ALONG THE SUNGARI RIVER: In Manchuria, a village inn by a river is a regular stop for carters, so it's not surprising that the daughter of the innkeeper has a carter for a sweetheart. But all sweetness and tranquility is shattered by the invasion of the brutal Japanese in 1931. Quinnian and Sunnu end up as slaves in a coal mine, but are soon heading up a workers' rebellion to overthrow their Japanese masters.
