»So Long, My Son« tells the stories of two Chinese families through three decades of social, political and human upheaval. After a child’s tragic accidental death, their paths diverge. Even though separated, their common search for truth and the desire for reconciliation with tragedy remains. But saying goodbye can last a lifetime.
»So Long, My Son« records people and a society in times of upheaval: times in which interpersonal relationships and the country’s tempestuous development are inseparably intertwined.The latest film by the great Chinese independent director Wang Xiaoshuai (Beijing Bicycle, Shanghai Dreams, In Love We Trust, Red Amnesia) is an intergenerational, deeply moving family epic that bestowed its two phenomenal leading actors Yong Mei and Wang Jing each with a Silver Bear as Best Leading Actor at the 2019 Berlinale.
