Film Details

Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains

Film Synopsis

At her 70th birthday celebration, the aged matriarch of the Yu family celebrates alongside her four sons and their families. At her party, she suffers a stroke, which precipitates her decline into dementia. The four brothers face crucial changes in their relationships to one another over the course of a year as their fortunes ebb and flow. The film shares its name with one of the great treasures of Chinese art: a 14th-century landscape painting by Yuan Dynasty master Huang Gongwang and mirrors the seven-metre handscroll’s immersive scope. The first film in a proposed trilogy by first-time director Gu Xiaogang with each set among different towns along the Yangtze river.
