Even those in China can be forgiven for having missed "Where Have All the Flowers Gone", an independent film promptly banned on release in 2000 under allegations it romanticized teen suicide. Quietly resurrected for legal distribution in 2002, the film is a real accomplishment for its remarkable cast. And while the camera lingers heavily on Xia Yu and Zhou Xun, the real star of the film in our opinion is Pu Shu, whose songs grace the soundtrack and help root the film's artistic yearnings in simple nostalgia for friends and times long gone.

If you liked this song, be sure to check out Fan Fan's popular and grammatically-challenged cover. Also worth listening to are a few recordings of Wang Fei covering it live in concert as well.

Fantastic stuff!!!

They've had that Fan Fan cover on rotation for AGES at a clothing store down the street from where I live, but I'd never picked out a lot of the words. The mouseover annotations are great, by the way. This site gets two thumbs way up.

我第一次来,好像是一个挺有意思的网站呢。我的英文不太好,用中文可以吗?请大家多关照阿。

朴树的那些花儿是我最喜欢的歌,不过这个电影我没看过,有没有看过的朋友能给我讲讲是什么故事呢?谢谢阿。

Hi Scarlett

用中文当然欢迎,这个网站就是一个用中英文交流的平台。

我也盼着看这个电影呢,因为在大陆被禁了,只能等朋友带光盘来给我看了。

我喜欢的另外一部电影是'小裁缝‘。

Another movie I liked is Little Dressmaker.

我尤其喜欢小裁缝走出大山的那一段,很出乎我的意料。Particularly the scene she decided to leave her village which surrounded by mountains in Sichuan.

尽管文革时期,在政治上中国女性已经独立,但是她的决定在那个时代,在她所处的社会环境还是铤而走险的。

Although Chinese women had achieved political right, her decesion of leaving was still bold and adventurous during Cultural Revolution period.

@leanne,

谢谢你的回复:)

嗯,听得我更想看了,看看能不能找到盗版dvd:P

你说的“小裁缝”我听说过,不过也没看过,也是周迅演的吧?怎么听起来有点儿娜拉的味道啊,不知道是不是这样?

我给两个中文教师朋友推荐了这个网站,她们都说觉得很好,而且还都给她们班里的学生推荐了。很有前途的网站,加油阿!我也会常来的。

(我也练习用一下英文,如果有错误还请大家帮忙啊)I recommended this website to two Chinese teachers and they both think it is pretty good. They also introduced the site to their students. Very promising site, good luck for you guys! I am sure that I will come often too.

Hopefully I can make some foreign friends here too.

Out of curiosity, is this song about one girl or a number of them? The lyrics seem ambivalent.

@vineyard,

This song is about those girls through the man's life. Whenever it says "她", it actually means one of them.

@Greenmoon55,

您是中国同胞吗?

这是我最喜欢的一首朴树的歌,有一种苍凉的美感。

@borneoherbs,

俺也有这种感觉。但是俺觉得这些音乐还是很好听的。只不过俺看到歌手的时候觉得有点失望,然后就开始觉得连音乐也不咋地了。。。
