Based on the parts of Yu Hua’s novel, To Live, and Zhang Yimou’s film adaptation we covered in class, which version do you think is more effectively critical of the government and its policies, and why? Explain clearly and support your argument with at least three sets of specific examples from the novel and the film.
Compare and contrast how the author Yu Hua and the director Zhang Yimou handle the materials differently.
If an example/episode appears in the novel, but not in the film, you should also discuss the significance of its absence.
