"The Blue Kite (simplified Chinese: 蓝风筝; traditional Chinese: 藍風箏; pinyin: Lán fēngzheng) is a 1993 drama film directed by Tian Zhuangzhuang. The Blue Kite serves as one of the quintessential examples of China's Fifth Generation filmmaking, and in particular reveals the impact the various political movements, including Anti-Rightist Movement and Cultural Revolution, had upon directors who grew up in the 1950s and 1960s.

"2.4. The Blue Kiten tapauksessa tuntuu vähän typerältä nillittää siitä, että se on turhankin juonivetoinen eikä siinä tapahdu tarinankerronnallisesti mitään erityisen ihmeellistä. Ehkä sen takia ja muihin viidennen sukupolven (ja Zhuangzhuanginkin) elokuviin verrattuna se tuntui pieneltä pettymykseltä, vaikka se onkin noin muuten ihan perushyvä."
