Feng Xiaogang takes viewers back to the 1970s in upcoming film Youth

Directed by Feng Xiaogang (I Am Not Madame Bovary)Youth follows the story of Liu Feng, played by Huang Xuan (Extraordinary Mission), as he goes from popular dancer in the art troupe to a soldier on the real battlefield.

Liu Feng’s love interests are played by Miao Miao (Princess Agents), Zhong Chuxi (A Detective Housewife), while Yang Caiyu (Edge of Innocence), Wang Keru (Following the Dead), Li Xiaofeng (Housing) and Suijun Drolma play his fellow dancers.

Screenwriter Yan Geling has worked on several critically acclaimed productions, including Zhang Yimou’s Flowers of War and Coming Home, and Zhang Li’s Forty Nine Day Memorial, so hopefully this film will get the same quality treatment. Youth was initially screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, and will premiere in Mainland China on September 30th (scroll to the bottom for details on North America release).
