Still Life
Monday, 7 June 2010

Jia Zhangke. China. 2006. 109 mins. Sub-titles. Cert PG.

Winner of the 2006 Venice Film Festival, Still Life is a daring tale which sets two individuals against an elemental force, in this case China’s dizzying expansion. Han Sanming, a coal miner, and Shen Hong, a nurse, each search for their missing partners in Fengjie, a picturesque town set to disappear under the Three Gorges Dam.
