Letter from an Unknown Woman
On a wintry night in 1948 Peking, a writer receives a letter from a dying woman he doesn't know. In the letter, the woman tells of her lifelong love for the man across the stirring backdrop of wartime China. Director and star Jinglei Xu reimagines Max Ophüls's 1948 classic with breathtaking photography and a quietly feminist spin. Xu won a Best Director award at the San Sebastian International Film Festival.
