Sedan Secrets
29 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like UNIFORM, this visually-beautiful film demonstrates the struggles of modern-day Chinese people. The protagonist, an attractive so-called bar girl, has left her rural roots to find big city success. She hides her less-than-noble occupation from her father, who searches for her brother, also a city newcomer. Most of the film dwells on their cat-and-mouse game of secrets, but there is an amazing connective scene after the one-hour mark. It takes place in a luxury car, and its four passengers each harbor unspoken individual turmoil. Thereafter, the film races to an ending fitting of 3 luxury AfroPixFlix detanglers. Luxury Car (Jiang cheng xia ri) 2006; Director/Writer: Chao Wang
