Mainland master Jia Zhangke scales new heights with Mountains May Depart. At once an intimate drama and a decades-spanning epic that leaps from the recent past to the present to the speculative near-future, Jia's new film is an intensely moving study of how China's economic boom and the culture of materialism it has spawned has affected the bonds of family, tradition, and love.

Critical Acclaim

"Essential viewing...Mr. Jia takes the pulse of China." -Manohla Dargis, The New York Times


"Blew us away from the get-go." -Amy Taubin, Film Comment


"Staggeringly ambitious piece of work from a filmmaker who creativity is evolving before our eyes." -Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
