The Road Home (Wo de fu qin mu qin) - 1999 film directed by Yimou Zhang. City businessman Luo Yusheng returns to his home village in North China for the funeral of his father, the village teacher. He finds his elderly mother insisting that all the traditional burial customs be observed, despite the fact that times have changed so much, and that it involves many people carrying his father's body back to the village - the road home. As Yusheng debates the complications involved in organising such a big feat, he remembers the magical story of how his father and mother first met and got together. The story is as beautiful as the cinematography and will take you on an unforgettable journey filled with romance, culture and tradition. Stars Ziyi Zhang, Honglei Sun and Hao Zheng. In Mandarin with optional English or French subtitles - Rated G.
