Chinese Marriage
Film by Wanhu Jin

    Chinese Marriage


    In old Chinese society children would not be allowed to make their own decisions about marriage. They had to meet several possible partners through a matchmaker and their parents would give permission for the marriage. However, the younger generation has totally different concepts about marriage nowadays. This film shows traditional Chinese matchmaking and the conflict between parents and children in the current Chinese society.
