An odd piece of Chinese Communist Party propaganda that chronicles and celebrates China's development of nuclear weapons. Frightening in its adhesion to the party-line, this drama documents the Chinese government's decision to enter the arms race due to a self-proclaimed threat of insecurity after WWII, the Chinese Civil War and the Korean War. They hire a MIT-trained Chinese patriot to head the project, but there is a huge snag - his wife's estranged father is a capitalist. "Chilling" (The Village Voice). In Mandarin with English subtitles.
