Women in Film 2016 | Please Remember Me by Zhao Qing
Please Remember Me by Zhao Qing / China / 78 min / 2015 / PG
school principal 88-year-old Lou has had Alzheimer’s for the last 10
years. She now recognizes almost no one except for her husband Feng.
Nonetheless, they live a full and happy life in Shanghai. But when Feng himself
gets sick, he decides it’s time for them to move into a retirement home. The subjects of Qing Zhao’s tender portrait are her own
great uncle and aunt, whom she followed for three years. As an old Chinese saying goes, “Hold his hand to grow old together.” Please Remember Me perfectly encapsulates these words.
