Coming Home — International Teaser Trailer



After taking a small break, acclaimed Chinese director Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern) returns this year with the heart-wrenching epic drama "Coming Home," which reunites the filmmaker with his longtime acting collaborator/muse Gong Li and his "Hero" co-star Daoming Chen.

This new international teaser trailer offers the first peek at the upcoming period drama, which spans over several decades as it follows the lives of a Chinese couple (Gong Li and Daoming Chen) who were forced into an unhappy marriage, until one day the husband escapes to America, only to see himself thrown into a labor camp. And going by the film's title, the crux of the story seems to teeter on his eventual return to China.

Zhang Yimou hasn't directed a film, since 2011's war drama "The Flowers of War." Although his hiatus might have been prolonged due to his unfortunate legal battles over China's one-child policy (the director apparently violated the government rule when authorities discovered that he had fathered more children than allowed, which resulted in a whopping fine of $1.2 million).

"Coming Home" will be hitting China in May, festival screenings will likely follow.

synopsis:
Set during China's politically sensitive Cultural Revolution period, the film tells the story of an intellectual who is forced into marriage, flees to America and is sent to a labor camp upon his return to China. (via hollywoodreporter.com)
