Fictiefilm / 2019 / 3:05 / Director: Wang Xiaoshuai / Cast: Wang Jingchun, Yong Mei, Ai Liya, Qi Xi, Wang Yuan, Du Jiang, Cheng Li, e.a / China / Spoken languages: Chinees / Subtitles: Dutch, French

So Long, My Son traces the lives of two families over three decades of social, political and human upheaval in China. Following the loss of a child in a tragic accident, their paths separate. Destinies ebb and flow, and fortunes are transformed under the impact of a country’s changing face. Yet even as their lives diverge, a common search for truth and reconciliation around the tragedy remains. But sometimes it can take a lifetime to say farewell. It chronicles people and a society in full transformation - in which human relationships and the tumultuous evolution of a nation are inevitably and inextricably intertwined.

Press:

"A film that is methodical while retaining a sense of authenticity, So Long, My Son is a gratifyingly considerate event." ★★★★ - The Upcoming
