I may be recalling this movie wrong, but I think I saw it in college (sometime in the early 90's) and it is about a woman in china, around the tiem of the revolution, I cannot recall much about it except several scenes. There was a scene in a hospital where a baby was born in bad condition and and no one could help beacue all of the doctors were removed as they were educated. There was anotehr scene where shadow puppets acted out osme folklore. This movie was in the news a lot when it was released as it was banne d in chine. I really want to find this movie as I LOVED it and want to add it to my fledgling movie collection.
