Director: Yang Lina
Yang Lina's documentary is a fascinating insight into the late-life trials and emotion of Beijing's senior citizens.
At 90, Lao An shows no signs of slowing down - a passion for dance gives him the vitality of someone half his age. A chance encounter with Wei, a dancer he meets in a park one day, leads to a new friendship, and eventually an extramarital affair. Mr An's world and social circle are thrown into a spin as everyone weighs in with an opinion on the tryst. Worst of all is the wrath of Mr An's jealous and scary wife. But soon an unexpected event tests the compassion of everyone involved.“I'm for seniors falling in love… seniors have the same emotional needs, the ability to love does not diminish with age.” - filmmaker Yang Lina
