China 2018, 108 minutes, original language with English subtitles, directed by Xiaozhi Rao
With Jianbin Chen, Suxi Ren, Binlong Pan, Yu Zhang, Yinyin Ma
Rated 12 years and older
Off-the-wall crime comedy about an ex-policeman demoted to a guard, whose boss mysteriously disappears, and his paralysed sister who makes a morbid deal with the armed bandits who have kidnapped her.
A bizarre criminal story with generous helpings of slapstick as well as bold social criticism: hurt male pride, failed ambition, unceasing striving for prosperity, the right to die, public humiliation, repentance and the lack of fundamental dignity in modern China.
In cooperation with Munich City Library
(Konfuzius-Institut München e. V.)
