11 FLOWERS (Wo 11; China/France, 2011). Set during the last days of the infamous Cultural Revolution, Director Wang Xiaoshuai's delicate, often richly comic coming-of-age drama is told from the point of view of an eleven year old boy, whose life is changed when he encounters a fugitive on the run. Impressive in its evocation of time and place, this film is universal in its depiction of the struggles and aspirations that make us human. In Mandarin and Shanghainese with English subtitles. 115 minutes.
