LOVE SONG 1980 is about youth, love, desire, life and death. It is also about the 80s, an era lovingly known as a spiritual utopia and loaded with imaginative nostalgia.


Recognized as an award-winning screenwriter for many LOU Ye’s works, the director MEI Feng intends to seek and create a new narrative of this enticing era in his second directorial feature.

Zhengwen, a college student who exudes a healthy glow of natural and youthful masculinity, vacillates between two different women, one is amicable and mystic, the other is caring and passionate. The ivory tower is not only an exclusive place for acquiring knowledge, but a space where the protagonists get their respective education about love and life.

Using lots of close-up shots and the 4:3 frame, LOVE SONG 1980 provides a subjective yet immersive reminiscence of a youthful past.
