Introduction to the movie "Children of the Rivers and Lakes"


"The rivers and lakes are both my romantic world of imagination, and the life I have actually experienced."—— Jia Zhangke

The story tells the story of a criminal love story between a pair of lovers in 17 years. In 2001, a city outside Shanxi. The model is clever and the taxi company owner Bin Ge is a pair of lovers. Bin Ge calls friends every day outside, and he hopes to enter the marriage as soon as possible. Once, Bin brother was attacked by competitors on the street. He was sentenced to five years in prison for protecting Bin’s street. After I was out of jail, I started looking for Bin brother to start again, but things have changed unexpectedly...



Jia Yuke's "Children of the Rivers and Lakes", the story originated from the rivers and lakes, and the gradually clear outlines of the rivers and lakes are placed in the gradual development of the life of the children of the rivers and lakes. This is a film that uses the dialogue between the mountains and the west. It is rooted in the county towns and mountains where the land of China is very ordinary but beautiful. In the course of the 17-year era, the sea of sangtian, things are human beings, the children of the rivers and lakes have experienced rough times, and the wave of the times has been pushed into the sky. Jia Zhangke picked up the fragments of time and used an invisible line to connect the Chinese story with mountains and rivers, rivers and lakes, children, and love and ordinaryness.

The film is starring Liao Fan, Zhao Tao, Xu Wei, Liang Jiayan, Yan Yinan, Ding Jiali, Zhang Yibai, Zhang Yi and Dong Zijian.
