233 South State Street
After losing his two-year-old son, Lei (Andy Lau) begins a fourteen-year-long quest in search of his missing child. On the road, he makes a stop at a repair shop where he comes across a young repairman, Ceng (Jing Boran), who was also kidnapped at the age of four. Robbed of the life he was meant to live, Ceng can only vaguely remember snippets of home - a chain-link bridge, bamboo tress, and his mother's long braids. Lost and Love is an uplifting portrait of two lost souls who forge an unlikely friendship and, in the face of a hopelessness and despair, inspire courage and perseverance in one another. 108 min. Unrated. Mandarin with English subtitles. (Synopsis: Courtesy of China Lion Film Distribution)
