Storyline

From World War, to revolution and ultimately rebirth, Forever Young is the story of four generations spanning a hundred years of modern Chinese history. Each generation faces its own unique set of challenges. Up against corporate corruption, the trials and tribulations of the cultural revolution, and one's duty to nation in time of war, they are faced with choosing their individual paths through history. But as the challenges and turmoil of each generation may differ as time changes, what was learned in the past cannot help but effect the choices that are made in the future as it is passed down from generation to generation. And that is the universal message that being true to yourself is precious. It is the source of strength that empowers one to become the person they want to be, to march forward as far as their hearts desire, into the future.

Everyone would see and puke
21 July 2018 | by onisigaSee all my reviews

Tipical pretentious "art" movie filmed by ambitious immature women director and overrated by illiterate people that never went to colledge. Chaotic presentation and brutal way to connect the four irrelevant childish stories. A shame on Tsinghua University as their promotional anniversary present. Funny thing that Zhang Ziyi would never die no matter how beaten up she was during any film like as in House of Flying Daggers. A curse? maybe?
