A sympathetic portrait of a painful and confused period in China's history. It can't possibly be as thorough as a book, but for its medium it can't be better done. I most liked the archival photos and footage and the extensive use of interviews from a range of people: they transmitted in the most humane way how the political and economic changes were experienced by people.

Action, intrigue, drama. Joy and tragedy amid violent power struggles. Almost like a Hollywood epic, except it's real life.

This is a very well made documentary (3 DVDs) covering China's twentieth century (1911 - 1997) history. The documentary includes extensive interviews and historical footage which should be of interest to a wide range of audiences, from those who know very little about China's history to those who are experts on the topic.
