To Live (1994)

If you're in the mood for another sweeping family saga ala LEGENDS OF
THE FALL, then try TO LIVE.  Director Zhang Yimou (RAISE THE RED
LANTERN) recounts three decades of Chinese history as seen through the
eyes of a poor, working-class couple (Ge You and Gong Li).  You won't
see anything like Brad Pitt here, but you *will* get a remarkably
detailed portrait of Life Under Mao.  Winner of two awards at last
year's Cannes film festival including Best Actor.  Subtitled.  (Not
Rated/130 min.)

Grade: A
