Viewed as the last of a Cultural Revolution trilogy, which includes Shanghai Dreams (2005) and 11 Flowers (2011), Red Amnesia is an examination of China’s selective memory. Stage veteran Lu Zhong plays Mrs Deng, an overbearing widow in her 70s who struggles to take care of her aging mother, her two sons, and her grandson. Her daily routine is disrupted when she starts receiving anonymous phone calls. The calls force her to look back upon a 40-year-old mistake made during the Cultural Revolution, one of moral compromise, which she must now face. Wang excels in his evocative portrayals of family dynamics, which carry the weight of the film. He presents a realistic portrait of contemporary Beijing society, one that, in its eagerness to forget, has left a generation adrift, even in their atonement.
