Zhang Yimou film Cliff Walkers (悬崖之上) remains in Pittsburgh through (at least) May 12.


The 2021 Zhang Yimou film Cliff Walkers (悬崖之上), which opened in Pittsburgh on April 30, will remain here through at least May 12. A brief summary from Asian Movie Pulse:
Based on a script by Quan Yongxian, the previously known as “Impasse” film focuses on four communist party special agents, Zhang, Lan, Yu and Chiuliang, who arrive in Manchukuo in 1931, after training in Russia, in order to carry out a secret mission codenamed “Utrenya”. The operation is to take place in Harbin, where a witness to a Japanese massacre is hiding. The four of them decide to split, although Lan and her husband are rather reluctant to separate. Before they do, however, they promise each other that, whoever survives, should find their children, who have been left behind before their training begun.
It will play locally at the AMC Loews Waterfront (map) and tickets are available online.
