Directed by Jiang Wen | 1994

With Xia Yu, Ning Jing, Geng Le

Jiang’s anarchic take on the coming of age saga follows daredevil teen Monkey (Xia) as he and his friends run wild through the streets of Beijing during Mao’s Cultural Revolution, envisioned by the director as a sun-splashed urban wilderness of youthful abandon. Pulsing with visual imagination—particularly in the dynamic, unchained camerawork—it’s frustratingly hard to see in the US, but ranks as one of the major works of 1990s Chinese cinema.
