Writer/director Zhangke Jia’s critically acclaimed romance/drama unfolds through a three-part story in different time frames. At the centre is a tale set in the Chinese underworld about a dancer who fires a gun to protect her criminal boyfriend. On leaving prison years later, she sets out to find him. The prolific filmmaker’s latest expands into a wider, epic account of how unknown forces can shape lives and futures.
An epic love story plays out against the dizzying changes of contemporary China with a superb performance by Zhangke muse Zhao TaoGráinne Humphreys, Festival Director
