Together – Chen Kaige
Liu Xiaochun, a 13-year-old violin prodigy, and his devoted father, Liu Cheng, leave their provincial Chinese town for Beijing, hoping to find a violin teacher and, ultimately, success. The teenager is at first coached by the eccentric professor Jiang, but he is soon replaced with the renowned professor Yu (played by the director Chen Kaige). As the day of the big competition fast approaches, Xiaochun must decide if this new, high-pressure life is right for him. In Mandarin, subtitled. 2002; 119 min. Co-sponsored by the Rutgers University Confucius Institute!
