The era that was gone forever
24 February 2004 | by zzmaleSee all my reviews

The actual literal translation of the title of this movie is: Friends that are Strangers.

When audience in China look at this movie that was made two decades ago in the early era of reforms, there is no doubt in their mind that the era is gone forever, an era in which you could trust strangers who would risk their own lives to save you from robbers. It is a stark contrast that back then material wealth was scarce but morality was not, but in the current economic boom, the situation is reversed. This movie therefore should be shown again and again to remind people that morale and ethics should not be forgotten in the process of making money.
