Coming Home, a 2014 Chinese historical drama film, will be screened at Spazju Kreattiv Cinema on Thursday at 7.30pm as part of the ongoing Chinese Film Festival.

The plot revolves around Lu Yanshi and Feng Wanyu, a devoted couple forced to separate when Lu is arrested and sent to a labour camp as a politi­cal prisoner, just as his wife is injured in an accident. Lu is released during the last days of the Cultural Revolution, and finally returns home, only to find that his beloved wife has amnesia and remembers little of her past.

The film is directed by talented director Zhang Yimou and stars Chen Daoming and Gong Li, two of the most celebrated actors in China.
