Rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

Initially drawing high praise and large attendance in China, the government suddenly banned the film and pulled it from theaters last September.

“It’s a gorgeous, quietly affecting film that finds an unassuming beauty in this simple life in rural China, but which doesn’t shy away from the extreme hardships faced by the very poorest.” – Wendy Ide, Observer

“An unhurried but hypnotic portrait of two discards thrown together to scratch out a life as they weather the seasons.” – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

“RETURN TO DUST is many things — a vivid portrait of China’s hardscrabble rural north-west, an unexpected victim of state censorship — but it is first and last a love story.” – Danny Leigh, Financial Times

Language: Mandarin (English subtitles)
