  As one of the three masterpieces of the famous director Hou Xiaoxian in the 1990s, the movie ‘Flowers at Sea’ is based on Han Bangqing’s novel ‘Flowers at Sea’ created in 1892. Its Mandarin version was translated by Zhang Ailing, a famous writer. The story told in the film took place in Shanghai in the 1880s. In its rich and exquisite emotional atmosphere, the intense dialogue, the thick ink design and the amber-like tone and light and shadow were all captured by the photographer Li Pingbin’s lens.

  Just like fine watchmaking art, film restoration requires great patience and high precision. It is a harmonious unity of precision technology and fine art. The original intention of film restoration was not only to repair faded film, but also to faithful originals in all aspects. Advances in technology have brought great help to the restoration work, but the hands of the craftsman and the eyes of the artist are irreplaceable, as it is in the world of light and shadow, as well as in the world of timepieces.

The script was written by Xia Yan, then screenwriter of the Chinese Ministry of Culture, and adapted from Lu Xun’s famous short story ‘Blessing’ in 1924.
  Time is the common soul of the world of timepieces and the world of movies. Both capture the moments of time, show the charm of time, and express the emotions contained in time, which are all about the creation and treasure of time.
