Real story?


It look like it is a real story and they even say at the end that the teacher went back to her family farm and that they rebuild the school with the remaining money. But after that, the credits says the typical 'fictitious characters and incidents, any similarity is coincidental'
I don't expect to many answers...look like not many people saw this movie, unfortunate..we need more stories like this one.

Rather than being based on any real story, I think it was more or less a docudrama, starring real people (all the characters used their real names), to outline the problems faced by rural Chinese schools and their students.

Cute, moving story.

the story was probably 'inspired' or based on incidents that often occur in the rural schools. i don't think it was an actual story that the director retold. however, i can guarantee you that stories more heart breaking like this occur in rural schools in china often.
i love alot of movies directed by Zhang Yimou, his style is poigant yet subtle.

I know all the actors in this moive are not real "actors",they are picked from country to play,just some normal kids in village, use their real names,and return to their real life after shooting.
