4 Purple Sunset (2001)

As the last film of the director Feng Xiaogang's "War and Peace trilogy", Purple Sunset is set in the historical period when the World War II was about to end and the Japanese army nearly lost control of mainland China. The film narrates an intricate life and death story of three people who come from different countries (one Chinese civilian, one doctor from the Soviet Union and a Japanese school girl), but because of the war, their fates are closely intertwined. What Feng tries to express is that the Sun is supposed to be the symbol of life, but its color would change when shadowed by warfare.

The film won Best Feature on the 2001 Hawaii International Film Festival.
