Bleak picture of life in a developing economy
18 August 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The story is set in a modern provincial industrial town in China. There are factories, steel furnaces, destroyed landscapes. Everywhere you see the results of exploitation of the physical environment in an attempt to escape poverty.

This element of exploitation is shaping human relationships as well. In particular rape is the recurring theme of the film. All this is seen through the eyes of an unquestioning agent of government authority, a ruthless female jailer. In her uncharacteristic and futile quest for love she takes the regular night train to a dating agency in a nearby town.

The film is shot in an understated way. Nothing seems exaggerated or hyped. I too was underwhelmed at first, but having seen it a couple of days ago I find images and scenes are still haunting me. And it was only in retrospect that I realized how desperate the ending was.

As a portrait of a society hovering just above the poverty line it has a universal appeal that easily transcends its place of origin.
