Snow Flower and the Ancient Proverbs
 SnowFlower_BD_Oring_Spine_7_6_11.jpg
Growing up in 19th century China, Lily (Bingbing Li) and Snow Flower (Gianna Jun) 
are brought together in a Laotong friendship—a lifelong bond between two women 
who rely on each other for companionship and comfort. 
Amid the civil unrest and gender discrimination of the era, 
the pair deals with life’s hardships together until 
they are separated by marriage and childbirth. 
As sworn sisters, however, the women continue to communicate 
through the secret Chinese language of nushu, 
hiding their stories and messages within the folds of delicate silk fans.
Snow Flower’s best friend Lily learns about a Laotong from her aunt, 
who describes it as a “relationship made by choice for the purpose 
of emotional companionship and eternal fidelity.”
Playing on this quote, and to celebrate the release of 
SNOW FLOWER AND THE SECRET FAN 
on Blu-ray and DVD Nov. 1, 
we will compile a list of other Chinese proverbs to live by, including, 
“A bird does not sing because it has an answer. 
It sings because it has a song” and, 
“Deep doubts, deep wisdom, small doubts, little wisdom.”
A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.
A child’s life is like a piece of paper on which every person leaves a mark.
He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
Deep doubts, deep wisdom, small doubts, little wisdom.
He who strikes the first blow admits he’s lost the argument.
Jade must be chiseled before it can be considered a gem.
To know the road ahead, ask those coming back.
Outside noisy, inside empty.
A spark can start a fire that burns the entire prairie.
Behind every able man, there are always other able men.
SNOW FLOWER AND THE SECRET FAN

“An emotionally powerful tale of two sets of Chinese women
in two different centuries”
