Whatever Jia shows us and wherever he takes us, we're always aware of being in the hands of one of the contemporary world's great filmmakers.

Fenyang, 1999. On the cusp of the capitalist explosion in China, Shen Tao has two suitors Zhang, an aspiring entrepreneur, and his best friend Liangzi, who works in a coal mine. Shen Tao decides to marry Zhang -- a man with a future. Leaping 15 years forward, the couple's son Dollar is paying a visit to his now-estranged mother. Everyone and everything seems to have grown more distant in time and space. And then we leap further ahead in time, to even greater distances.
