Night Owl

To Live

Surprisingly intense, the open scenes do not belie what will happen in the coming years. Fugui gambles until everything he owns is gone, his house, his wife and his father. A cloud with silver lining, as when the Communists take power he and his family then belong to the lower class. What starts with Fugui seeking redemption, becomes a compelling depiction his familyís struggle to survive under Maoist China.
