This ge­nius adap­ta­tion by Meng Jinghui - one of the big­gest names in China’s drama cir­cle and an avant-garde the­atri­cal director - of Fran­coise Sa­gan’s Bon­jour Tristesse, is a pow­er­ful piece about youthful re­bel­lion and the cru­elty of love and life that uses quirky hu­mour and ab­sur­dity to bring about the psy­cho­log­i­cal ac­tiv­ity of the naive, capri­cious daugh­ter... The unique per­form­ing style of Meng’s fa­vorite ac­tress Huang Xian­gli and in­no­va­tive use of mul­ti­me­dia adds charm to the stage pre­sen­ta­tion. The orig­i­nal novel, pub­lished in 1954 when the author was only 18, re­counts the moods of a 17-year-old Cé­cile who spends her sum­mer in a villa on the French Riviera with her se­duc­tive, worldly and amoral fa­ther. An English­language film adap­ta­tion was re­leased in 1958, di­rected by Otto Preminger.
