With a nod to King Hu’s 1971 martial arts epic A TOUCH OF ZEN, writer-director Zhangke Jia presents four fables set in contemporary China: a motorcycling drifter despatches his would-be assailants in a burst of gunfire, an act that has repercussions later on; greedy politicians compel a miner to take bloody revenge; a receptionist at a sauna issues an ultimatum to her married lover; and a worker in an electronics factory is forced to take on a series of menial and ultimately humiliating jobs to compensate a colleague he inadvertently injured.
Richly expressive camerawork by regular collaborator Likwai Yu fortifies Zhangke Jia’s most telling reflection of a nation in rapid and uneasy cultural transition.
