Shanghai Dreams poster

Here's the poster for SHANGHAI DREAMS, one of the Chinese movies at Cannes this year (click on the image for a bigger version)Poster for SHANGHAI DREAMS.

There's also a write-up of the film that someone kindly sent me that looks like it was taken from the official (and slightly confusing) press material:

"In the 1960s, encouraged by the Chinese Government, large numbers of urban families left the major cities to settle in the poorer regions of the country in order to "build the nation"  by  developing the local economies and local industry.

"The heroine of SHANGHAI DREAMS is nineteen and lives in the poor mountainous Guizhou province with her parents and her brother. That's where she has grown up; that's where her friends are; and that's where she first experiences love. It's the only home she has ever known....but  her father
believes that their future lies in Shanghai.

How can they live together when they don't share the same dreams?

Director: Wang Xiaoshuai (BEIJING BICYCLE)

World Sales: Fortissimo"
