? Directed by He Jianjun
All over China, in the city and the countryside, you can find illegal
DVDs and video cassettes of well-known Western feature films. People
acquire their knowledge of films from these pirate versions and so
far there hasn't been a single feature film to focus on this
phenomenon. He Jianjun, best known for his unusual narrative technique
and calm, atmospherically lit feature films about contemporary Chinese
life, here skilfully uses the DV camera. The stories are set during a
cold winter in Beijing. The people selling illegal DVDs are everywhere:
in shopping centres, on viaducts, around the bars and at the university.
The film follows a variety of characters related to their favourite
films. After leaving university, Shen Ming lives on a menu of DVDs.
He meets the pretty yet indifferent Mei Xiaojing, who wants to throw
all her inhibitions overboard a la Almodovar. We see a drummer who
lives alone and became HIV positive after a medical error. Seeing
A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT makes him move to the infinity and peace of
the coast. An unemployed couple uses violent films (such as PULP
FICTION) to express their frustrations. But when they set out with
fake guns to commit a robbery, they are disenchanted. The illegal
DVDs, it becomes apparent, open up a road to a new and unknown world
for the characters, one that is even able to change their lives.
