Farewell China

1990 / 114min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: CLARA LAW

CAST: MAGGIE CHEUNG, TONY KA FAI LEUNG, CHIT-MAN CHAN

Director Clara Law lets Cheung display her full range in one of her very finest performances in this modern classic ill-served by home video. When Cheung’s character emigrates from mainland China to the USA, she leaves behind her baby and her husband (Tony Leung Kar-fai), who illegally enters the States to follow her, a journey which brings startling revelations and transports him to the bowels of New York, seen in grimy, off-the-grid locations.
