Description

Synopsis

Inland China in the late 90s, there is a junior high school focusing on martial arts with high standards of discipline. Under the headmaster's firm management, everyone tries their best to work and live in the stifling atmosphere.

There is a young boy called Cuishan who cannot fit into the school. He has no interest in martial arts and shows great academic talent. However, due to the school's focus on martial arts, his talent leads to a very difficult life in the school. He, therefore, repeatedly tries to run way, but all ends in failure.

The arrival of a young Chinese teacher breaks the balance there. Upon getting used to it, the new teacher gradually understands and sympathises Cuishan, trying to make a change on his own strength.

Finally, all the people find something different in their life, with Cuishan seizing a good opportunity to 'run away'. The teacher also accepts the reality, gains personal growth, and decides to pursue a different life.

  • The 31st Tokyo International Film Festival The Spirit of Asia Award by the Japan Foundation Asia Center

故事大纲

故事发生在90年代末的中国内陆的某个小城市,有一所形同监狱、军事化管理的武术学校。在校长的高压管理下,武校里各色人等都在这种压抑的气氛下努力共存着。

而在这所武校中,偏偏有一个格格不入的少年小山。他对武术毫无兴趣,却对学习文化知识表现了很强的天分。可因为身在武校,他这种尴尬的属性,让他生活过得非常凄惨。于是他屡次想要逃离,却都以失败告终。

直到有一天,一个年轻的文化课老师的到来打破了武校里的平衡。他慢慢地了解并同情小山的境遇,开始试图用自己微弱的力量去改变现状。

于是这个围城里所有的人的生活都发生了改变,小山也在一个微妙的契机中,完成了一次成功的“越狱”。 老师自己也因此认清了现实获得了成长,并决定去追求另外一种生活。
