Part of Tales from the New Chinese Cinema
Saturday, April 30, 2011, 7:00 p.m.

Introduced by series curator, Bérénice Reynaud

Dir. Hao Jie. 2010, 95 mins. Digital projection. With Yang Zhenjun, Du Tianguang, Liang Youzhong, Liang Chunying, Ye Lan. “This is a strange and delightful thing from China: a sex comedy, bawdy and a little raunchy, about four elderly farmers . . . all nonprofessional actors playing fictionalized versions of themselves. New director Hao Jie, with a bit of Boccaccio and a dollop of Rabelais, reveals a side of rural China you’ve probably never seen before . . . Chinese indie cinema at its most wryly entertaining.” —Vancouver International Film Festival
