Also known as Remembering 1942, from Blockbuster Chinese director Feng Xiaogang (冯小刚), the film was adapted by Feng and Liu Zhenyun (刘震云) from Liu’s renowned and best-selling 1993 novel “The Memory of 1942” (温故1942). It tells the epic true story of the famine in Henan (河南饥荒) in the 1940’s where 3 million people died of starvation and 30 million people were transplanted.

The Huayi Brothers (华谊兄弟) film, slated for a late-2012 release, stars Feng regulars Xu Fan (徐帆) of “Aftershock” (唐山大地震) and Zhang Hanyu (张涵予) of “Assembly” (集结号), and boasts the performances of two Academy Award-winning actors -- Tim Robbins of “Mystic River” and Adrien Brody of “The Pianist”, who play a Catholic priest and an American journalist, respectively.
