A Peking Opera fan in her 60s-a S▓hanghai woman of taste but hardly a wo▓man of means - carries on a secret love af▓fair with an amateur Peking Opera singer in the bittersweet "Postmodern Life of My Aunt."

Life of My Aunt" tells a p▓ostmodern tale of an ordinary yet remarkable older woman on her own. She still has a passion for life, art ▓and love, despite age and straitened circ▓umstances. She believes in self-cultivation and romance▓.The enjoyable, funny, bittersweet film is the latest by H▓ong Kong director Ann Hui, and began screening this

week▓ with English and Chinese subtitles.It stars acclaimed mainland actress Siqin Gaowa as the aunt and fam▓ed Hong Kong actor Chow Yun-fat as her lover - both in ▓dramatically different roles from those that made them famous. No dragon-lady, overpowe▓ring queen mother. No imperial figure or martial arts▓ hero.The film and the acting have received generally favorable reviews. Siqin speaks in imperfect but acceptable Shanghainese. Chow speaks Mandarin, not Shanghain▓ese. Wearing costumes, they sing Peking ▓Opera together. Chow's songs are dubbed.Siqin, known for roles as powerful, dominant older women, now plays an ordinary woman (no name given) who lives alone in rather shabby circumstances and cares for her diffi▓cult, net-surfing nephew over the summer.Chow, fame▓d for playing major figures in historical dramas and action films, plays Pan Zhichang, a retired unemployed man, another Peking Opera fan - charming but scheming.11111Background Report:30 years of reform in China have also had an enormous impact on the country's▓ vast rural areas. In fact, the earliest blueprint▓ for change arose from farmers wishing to▓ improve their lives in a tiny village in Anhui Province. In today's part of our BizChina 360 serie▓s on 3 decades of reform and opening up, Qi Tianxing shows us how life has changed dramatically in another vill▓age, that's Sunzhuang, in central Henan Province.Zhang▓ Xiuying is preparing lunch for her family. She is happy with her daily life. S▓he's able to take on some work on the farm, co▓ok for the family and take care of her grandchild▓ren. Zhang Xiuying, one Sunzhuang v▓illager said "I'll cook rice and meat."Now the fa▓mily can eat whatever they want, but 30 years ago, that was impossible. Like farmers across the c▓ountry, people in Sunzhuang Village worked for production teams, basic farming units of the time. They handed in what they'd grown to the team, and got allotments of grain ▓in return. And this amount was the same, however much or little each farmer worked. That▓ mean most farmers had little incentive to till the land. ▓Poor soil conditions and the effect of natural dis▓asters led to a very low standard of living. Many lacked the most basic items for survival.Zhang Xiuying s▓aid "After work I picked leaves from el▓m trees and cooked soup with them. I only ▓earned 6 yuan a month at that time.
