电影短评:

  • 影片并没有花很大的篇幅来展现反抗的热血和悲壮,大部分的时间都在演绎方兰与母亲的日常——母亲永远是在家中等待,方兰总是行色匆匆,母女间的交集无非是一餐粗茶淡饭,一次短暂的交心与争执,思念与牵挂。自始至终,都是那种淡淡的味道,就算偶尔为之的枪战场面也是以诙谐、幽默的方式呈现,生离死别这样本该催泪的桥段也极为克制,绝不拖沓地多表达一分。(中国妇女报 评)

Our Time Will Come

The story takes place in Hong Kong in the 1940s. A young girl, Fang Lan, lives a life of mutual dependence with her mother. They’ve leased out the second floor to writer Mao Dun and his wife Kong Dejun Fang Lang admires Mao Dun’s writing very much and felt passionate of the revolution and national integrity, however she only knows little about the surrounding situation and the intense political atmosphere. Liu Jinjin is a progressive and active young man with a fit body, entrusted by the government,he’s responsible for escorting a group of important scholars stranded in Hong Kong back to mainland China. Mao Dun family is on the list, and by coincidence, Fang Lan got involved in this critical mission. By the encouragement and advice of Liu Jinjin, she joined the revolution army, as a result the fate of the mother and daughter changed totally in the river of history.

Movie Review:

  • The movie didn’t take much plot to show the passion and tragic resistance of them, most of the time was just daily life of Fan lang and her mother waiting at home for her. Fan Lang is always in a hurry and rush in and out of the house, their interaction was just a simple meal, a short conversation and arguments, longing and worry. From the beginning to the end, a kind of light and subtle feeling throughout the movie, even when there’s shooting scenes, its still presented in a dark humorous way. Regarding life and death which should be dreadful, was represented by limited emotions, no extra expression revealed. (Reviewed by China Woman’s Daily)
