The Road Home
A charming romantic comedy, set mainly in China, 1958. A young man returns to his village home after his father dies, and recounts the tale of how his father and mother met and fell in love. Such a romance was unheard of, as the village custom at that time was built on arranged marriages. The bookends are about how the people in the area pay homage to his father, who was a schoolteacher there for 40 years.
The film has won some prestigious international awards. Chinese with English subtitles.
