A musically gifted young girl known as Rainbow suffers under an arranged marriage. Mute and unable to protest, her eye begins to wander and her mystical desires are accompanied by death and destruction, all taking place against the backdrop of China's war with Japan in the 1930s. The second feature from China's Gao Xiaosong, a popular songwriter whose expressionistic style blends surreal paintings with countryside panorama, and classical music with heavy metal rock. 91 min. Standard; Soundtrack: Mandarin stereo; Subtitles: English. In Mandarin with English subtitles.
