nu4 chao2, Title (?) ‘Fury Waves’.


This is so beautiful. Friends departing is a big theme in Chinese poetry and in cinema. 

Machine translation of the youtube description: 

Saw somebody off
 the movie “Raging tide of emotion” the interlude
 in 1963.

怒潮 is the title, which using character to pinyin reults in nu4 chao2. First character as an adjective is angry,furious,indignant; also can work as a noun, anger, passion, rage. Second character chao2 is less easy to find, its character no.250 in my Mathews Chinese-English Dictionary. Apparently means ‘tide’. So looks like a friend departing on the tide, thats the beauty of Hanyu, two characters convey so much.

Heres the clip, and I’ll go on youku to find the complete film….
