Chinese film director Zhang Yimou has praised the performances that actress Gong Li and actor Chen Daoming delivered in his newest film, "Coming Home".

The film tells a love story about separations and reunions. It's adapted from Yan Geling's novel, "LU FAN YAN SHI." However, the film begins where the novel ends, when the main character returns home.

Zhang shared his admiration for the acting prowess Chen Daoming and Gong Li displayed in "Coming Home." Zhang said, "Everyone knows that Chen Daoming and Gong Li are the best actors in China. I wanted to cast them from the very beginning. I learned a lot from them, too. They also gave advice about certain details of the film. Their contributions to the movie went beyond acting."

He also shared his thoughts on the performance by actress Zhang Huiwen, who plays the main character's daughter.

He said, "I was impressed by Huiwen's big, bright eyes when I first saw her, which echoes the arrogance of the Red Guards -- this is what I needed. During shooting, I need her to act absent-minded and hesitant: she really embodied that."

The film hits Chinese screens in May of this year.
