This chapter examines the post-war visualizations of the experiences of China during the War of Resistance in some popular films in Shanghai. It explains that disillusionment and despair were facts of post-war life in China and the majority of Chinese endured utter devastation which occurred over large parts of China the War of Resistance. It analyzes the films Far Away Love, Eight Thousand Miles of Cloud and Moon, and A Spring River Flows East and suggests that there was nothing revolutionary in them when it comes to the representation of the family.
