A transcript is available from MCLC Resource Center. I've already asked if subtitles can be made from the transcript but they said no since they've already licensed it to someone making a DVD.

Sorry, it seems that the file was damaged in upload, I'm trying to correct that now... The derived version (mpeg1, mpeg4) are incomplete. Be patient.

The subtitles are in VobSub format. If you use windows, google will probably be happy to tell you what software you can use to watch them.

Attached are the Chinese subtitles of 《小城之春 I converted tonight - format Unicode. I used subOCR 0.98 beta. I fixed the title and checked a few sentences, they look good:

3 住在一个小城里边

4 每天过着没有变化的日子

5 早晨买完了莱

6 总喜欢到城墙上走一趟

7 总喜欢到城墙上走一趟

8 这在我已经成了习惯

Enjoy!

Thanks Foolip for the suggestion. Be in touch:)

64 Kb movie is really poor quality for both watching and listening, downloading 256.

Bump! Watched this last night at the BFI, surprisingly full for a mid-week showing of a 1948 Chinese movie which even the director admits (according to the program notes) could be seen as a bit dull. 

 

Oh, but it's good though. 93 minutes, hardly anything happens, and you still can't take your eyes off the screen. 

 

I'd strongly recommend this for learners. It's free online, there's a transcript, the language is straightforward and delivered slowly and clearly, and there are so many pauses you could do paper-dictionary lookups on new characters and still keep up.
