This Life of Mine
(Wo zhe yibeizi)

by SHI Hui

This Life of Mine-3

In a first-person narrative, a man talks about fifty years of his life and Chinese history. He joined the police force at the beginning of the 20th century during the final days of imperial rule. He saw the downfall of the Qing, the Japanese invasions and the Guomingdang – a witness petrified by the horrors of war and changing ideologies.

Adapted from a short story by Lao She, the famous Chinese writer, This Life of Mine offers a very personal and bitter vision of this long tormented period. Shi Hui, who plays the lead role, draws on documentary images that give a very present feeling to this historical voyage.
