User Reviews for The Golden Era

The brief life of Chinese novelist Xiao Hong unfolds in the slow-simmering 'Golden Era'

It’s an unforgettable and unsentimental recollection of the survival story of a female artist who’s way ahead of her time, told through an oral history by friends and acquaintances. The film follows her journey throughout 1930s China and well into the war years, a violent period in the country’s history that is especially unkind towards a woman like herself. The movie more stretched with documentary style.
