“As mesmerizing and immersive as the legendary 14th century landscape painting that inspired it … a vast canvas that stands up to close scrutiny both as a series of snapshots of its characters’ personalities and as the panorama of a society undergoing radical change.” – The Hollywood Reporter 

Shot over two years, and marking the first Chinese film to compete at Cannes Critics’ Week in eight years, Gu Xiaogang’s ambitious, assured debut follows the Yu family as their lives ebb and flow like the seasons over one eventful year, as an elderly Fuyang matriarch and her four adult sons weather the vagaries of fate – in the restaurant trade, in the pursuit of wealth and social standing, and in following their hearts.

The first film in a planned trilogy, Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains proves as visually rich as it is emotionally resonant – and, with its patient pacing, long tracking shots and understated splendour, earns comparisons to the work of Edward Yang and Hou Hsiao-hsien.

“A strikingly beautiful work.” – Screen Daily
