Zhang Yimou helms this tear-jerking romance in which a man recounts the story of his parents’ troubled courtship in rural China.  Their love is bashful and innocent, as the camera sweeps over bucolic rolling landscapes and rustic scenes of village life.  Zhang makes several interesting choices, such as filming the present day scenes in grainy black & white, while the past is in gorgeous color. (But, if you like heartbreaking nostalgia, I would go watch Cinema Paradiso instead.) A very strong Watchable, even Worth checking out if you like China stuff.
