Directed by Vivian Qu
In Mandarin with English subtitles
Rated PG: coarse & sexual language; violence
In a quiet seaside village in China, two victims of a brutal assault find themselves trapped in a web of danger and violence.
“It’s an excoriating story told with gentle sympathy; a lashing tale about the abuse and marginalisation of women; a shocking story of complicity and corruption – a Chinatown set in China”.
~Fionnuala Halligan, Chief Film Critic, Screen Daily
“The film looks heavenly, often bathed in light, as if Qu wants nothing more than to assuage these women of their suffering by suggesting paradise. But the brightness is just a veneer.”
~Andrew Crump, The Playlist
