A Girl of a Good Family

Young Chinese woman finds herself caught between oppressive tradition and revolutionary change as she suffers through an arranged marriage to a six-year-old child. Huang Jianzhong's film was widely acclaimed in the People's Republic for its socially ambitious subject and open-air styling, though the belated move toward naturalism still comes wrapped in an old-fashioned melodramatic package. It's a solid, respectable effort, but the conventionality finally tells (1985).
