The Road Home gives admirers of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon another look at Zhang Ziyi, the stunning young actress who played the female bandit. Her new film, strongly directed by Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern), starts in present-day China, as a son (Luo Yusheng) returns home to arrange his father's burial and recalls the stories of how his parents fell in love. Zhang Ziyi plays the mother as a girl who is smitten with the city teacher who arrives in her village, only to be forced out by political insurrection. The director finds poetry in the face of his lead actress, whose performance is as luminous and moving as the film itself.
