The first teaser trailer for Chinese director Zhang Yimou's upcoming period drama Coming Home surfaced Thursday on Chinese streaming video site LeTV.
The sweeping, emotion-laden spot is light on dialog and heavy on longing glances between Chinese stars Gong Li and Chen Daoming. Set during China's politically sensitive Cultural Revolution period, the film tells the story of an intellectual who is forced into marriage, flees to America and is sent to a labor camp upon his return to China. The film marks a reunion of sorts for Zhang and Li, who were once romantically linked and produced some of his their most acclaimed work together (Red Sorghum, Raise the Red Lantern).
