Run Time: 140 minutes
Winner of the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival, this dark comedy from director Jiang Wen takes a fresh look at life under occupation at the end of WWII. Jiang Wen also stars as Ma Dasan, a peasant who, one night at gunpoint, is forced to shelter two prisoners. One is a captured Japanese soldier who wants to be killed and the other is his Chinese interpreter who wants to stay alive. As the days turn into months, Ma Dasan and his fellow villagers keep their unwanted guests hidden from the Japanese, while deciding whether or not to execute them. The film's rich, bold cinematography is matched only by its approach to the subject, which, in turn, attracted the unwanted attention of Chinese censors who ultimately banned it form Chinese screens.
