Directed by Jiang Wen | 2000

With Jiang Wen, Kagawa Teruyuki, Yuan Ding

Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes but banned in the director’s home country, Jiang’s sophomore feature is a gonzo, wild-ride anti-war satire. Set during the Japanese occupation of China, it charts the pileup of tragicomic absurdities that ensue when a peasant (played by the filmmaker) is charged with looking after two volatile POWs—all building up to the audacious climax.
