SYNOPSIS:

Twee gezinnen groeien vanaf de jaren ’80 samen op tijdens de revolutionaire hervormingen in China. Hun wegen scheiden na het verlies van een kind tijdens een tragisch ongeluk. Te midden van een land in ontwikkeling blijken families, vriendschappen, liefde en het lot ook aan veranderingen onderhevig te zijn. Hoewel de beide gezinnen na al die jaren uit elkaar zijn gegroeid, is hun zoektocht naar de waarheid en drang naar verwerking van de tragedie altijd hetzelfde gebleven. Soms kan het echter een leven lang duren voordat men klaar is om vaarwel te zeggen.

Regisseur Wang Xiaoshuai is geen onbekende op het internationale filmtoneel, hoewel een deel van zijn films door hun maatschappijkritische karakter geboycot wordt in China. Ook ‘So Long, My Son’ is kritisch, maar het is vooral een aangrijpende epische vertelling van de drastische veranderingen in China, verteld op het niveau van de kleine man. Zowel de hoofdacteur als -actrice werden op het filmfestival van Berlijn bekroond met de Zilveren Beer.

Pers

“It’s in his ordinary goodness — not without its rages, deceptions and low-level alcoholism — that the film finds, then repeatedly breaks, your heart, before a subtly momentous finale which perhaps, after all the sorrow, is the happiest ending in recent memory.” – Variety

“De narratieve puzzel die Wang in ‘So Long My Son’ legt, dwingt je als kijker om extra aandachtig bij de les te blijven, maar ondertussen neemt hij je dankzij zijn sublieme mise-en-scène bijna ongemerkt in een emotionele houdgreep om je uiteindelijk midscheeps te raken.” – ★★★★★ (De Morgen)
