    This is so much a comment as a request. I’m trying to locate an old Chinese movie I saw. I borrowed the movie from my local library and found it very moving. Story of a family’s struggle in rural China set in (guessing) 1930s — 50s? Movie itself was B&W probably from the 50s. Lead character is the woman/mother/daughter that single-handedly carries the family through war & famine, toiling the land to scrape by. I think the husband abandoned them (or was conscripted) but returns some years later. It’s a long shot – but you seem to know your Chinese movies and I’m at my wit’s end. Thanks.

    You don’t have a search function. I had linked to a list called 10 All-Time Best Movies to Give You Itchy Travel Feet. The link is broken and now I can’t find it to correct the link. Help. Is it removed?
