Set in 2002 and charting over several years the life of Han Peiyin, a labourer who relocated from his rural home to work in the city of Xi’an to make money to pay for his son Shengli’s university tuition fees and living expenses. On a basic level, the film is an incredibly moving affair, with the determination of its characters offset and cruelly undermined by the harsh economic reality of the modern Chinese employment sector. Whether or not Western audiences can fully appreciate the drive of Chinese parents to sacrifice everything in order to push their children to succeed, it’s impossible not to be affected by the way in which Han Peiyin dedicates himself to his son’s development. The film is certainly bleak at times, all the more so for Shengli’s increasingly inevitable failure to find a job coming in spite of his own hard work and awareness of his father’s efforts. Through this, Li Junhu depicts a China very much in conflicted transition, with the desire of parents for their children to achieve financially being thwarted by factors effectively out of their own hands, and with the traditional ideals of scholarly attainment becoming bewilderingly irrelevant. The pressure, stress and frustration experienced by the film’s subjects make for poignant viewing, and its overall air of hopelessness is accentuated by the lack of any obvious solution or falsely upbeat conclusion.


中国导演李军虎的长纪录片《父亲》自2002年开始拍摄了韩培印接下来几年的生活。老韩为了赚儿子胜利上大学的学费和生活费背井离乡到西安打工。最简单的来说,这个故事非常感人,主人公坚韧不拔的努力却被中国当今就业形势残酷的现实打击得体无完肤。不论西方观众是否能理解中国父母为了子女牺牲一切的做法,不被老韩为了儿子而奉献的故事打动是不可能的。影片在某些部分确实是灰暗的,特别是当胜利在自己和目睹父亲付出了如此大的代价,却无法找到工作的时候。通过该片,李军虎展现了中国在转型中的矛盾,父母们期望子女有出息却被他们无法控制的因素打败,传统的读好书就能出人头地观念被现实无情地粉碎。影片主人公面对的压力和困境令观众动容,而影片没有尝试去虚假地提供一个答案,展示了在当今中国小人物们的无力与无助。
