Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress

Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress tells the story of two students sent to the countryside for re-education, their struggle to find literature, and their romance with a country girl.

It was a melancholy, at times poignant piece, but not a brilliant one. Worth it if there’s nothing else on the plane.

A final decision by one of the characters felt abrupt and inexplicable; to the point that it detracted from the movie overall.
