  • "Spanning four turbulent decades of Chinese history beginning in 1946, this is history from below, a story about the resiliancy of ordinary lives told in a series of "chapters". In its approach to history, To Live bears some resemblance to Tian Zhuangzhuang's The Blue Kite although Zhang's restrained melodrama contrasts with the low key naturalism of The Blue Kite with its focus on "victims". Fugui, the central character of To Live, is a disarmingly simple man who, despite misfortune, is never a victim. The fate of Fugui's shadow puppet troup seems to be a measure of his own fate."
