立春 [videorecording] = And the spring comes - Li chun
And the spring comesDVD - 2008 | Chinese
A homely and frustrated music teacher Wang Tsai Ling lives in a dingy industrial town and who teaches singing while dreaming of causing a sensation in the world of Western opera. Although her wonderful voices fails to get her accepted into a Beijing opera troupe, this does not stop her from bragging and lying to her neighbours about her achievements and about having connections in the big city. She falls in with a couple of workers, the clumsy but enthusiastic Zhou Yu , and would-be tortured artist Huang Sibao. Zhou falls for Wang, though she has her eye on Huang, and the two head for Beijing. Unfortunately, her attempts to break into the opera scene again result in failure, and Huang rejects her passionate advances. Returning home, she refuses to give in and accept her mediocre life, and teams up with an aging, effeminate ballet dancer called Mr. Hu.
