Peacock won a prestigous grand prize in Berlin Film Festival in 2005. The film depicts three brothers and sister growing up in China after the Cultural Revolution. The story does not involve much about politics though the traditional Chinese culture is much affected by the revolution. It focuses on the people in the time. The script is written with a lot of wits. The photography is very beautiful and elegant without doubt as the director was the photographer for the films of Zhang Yimou and Chen Kaige. I have a lot of bitter-sweet reflection after watching the film. ( and
