Peach girl (Tao hua qi xue ji)
Things to do
China's first golden age of cinema consisted of a body of aesthetically and ideologically important feature films that were produced in Shanghai from the early 1920s until about 1937. The best of these films mixed bold formal experimentation with socially conscious themes, becoming popular successes at the box office. Peach Girl (the literal title is Peach Blossom Weeps Tears of Blood) was one of these films directed by Bu Wancang for Lianhua Studios in 1931 and one of their most successful films of the year. The story is about a wealthy landowner's son (De'en) and a poor farmer's daughter (Lingu) who grow up together and fall in love despite coming from different social classes.
