PG
Together is a 2002 film directed by Kaige Chen about a father, Liu Cheng (Pequi Liu), and his son, 13 year old Xiao Chun (Yun Tang). Liu lives with his father in a small provincial town in China and is tremendously talented at playing violin. His somewhat pushy but well-intentioned father decides to move them to Beijing so that Xiao can get professional teaching and further his musical career. In the big city, their lives undergo many changes, and the small family has to make adjustments to their new lives. With the country's capital offering so many options and so much stimulation, the younger Xiao is allowed to flourish, explore and decide what he really wants in life. Along the way Xiao and his father meet a cast of interesting and unusual people, among them young Xiao's teachers. Filmed on location in beautiful Beijing, China, this film is in Mandarin Chinese, but has english subtitles.
