「人盡可夫的文秀令天地黯然,純樸的老金決定為她洗去污穢 她重捨逝去的

The story is narrated by a passionate admirer of the principal character (Luoyong Wang), who is sadly taking leave of his young girl friend Wenxiu, nicknamed Xiu Xiu (Lu Lu). An innocent resident of the city of Chengdu, she has been promised a job as a leader of the prestigious girls' Iron Cavalry, an appointment which would presumably be awarded after a one year's training program at hard labor followed by a six months' assignment to a remote region bordering Tibet.

At the Spartan training camp, the only entertainment for the youthful participants is an occasional black-and-white propaganda movie, concluding with a song in which the entire audience joins. To Xiu Xiu's surprise, she is ultimately sent down to a barren, isolated land to work the horses with a twenty-year veteran horse herder, Lao Jin (Lopsang), known far and wide as a man who had been castrated during a Tibetan uprising and who therefore poses no threat of improper conduct with the girl.

At the conclusion of the six months' assignment--during which time she has become fond of the much older man who treats her gently and who has obviously been taken by her innocent charms--she is eager to return to the bustling Chengdu, but no such luck.

Nobody comes to pick her up and give her the documents she needs to live there. Instead, a number of individuals pass through, claiming the ability to help her get the residence permits in return for her sexual favors. She quickly loses her innocence and her modesty, while the unhappy Lopsang is impotent to come to her aid. ULtimately Lopsang, the only person outside her own family to care for her, grants her the peace she so earnestly seeks.

This movie is truly incredible on many fronts. Firstly, the story is incredibly moving and powerful, without any schmaltz and the heavy-handed preaching about who's "right" and who's "wrong" that most Hollywood films resort to.

Most of the film examines the relationship between Xiu Xiu and the Tibetan herder she is forced to live with as part of her "re-education". The acting throughout is superb, with the two leads delivering subtle yet powerful performances. The photography and settings are breathtaking, and I didn't find the music intrusive at all...
