Women in Film 2016 | Please Remember Me by Zhao Qing

Please Remember Me by Zhao Qing / China / 78 min / 2015 / PG
Former 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.
