Film: Peacock (Kong Que)


If further proof were needed of the technical and emotional maturity of the New Chinese cinema, then Peacock supplies it. The story of three siblings in a provincial Chinese town at the tail end of the Cultural Revolution, this sensitive, deceptively simple takes a while to establish its authority, but patient audiences will warm to the story and its three young protagonists.
