Baober in Colorado
19 December 2006 | by azure_skySee all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing this strange and yet wonderful film at the Telluride film festival with a group of fellow film students, and actually got to meet the director and speak with her through a translator. She was thrilled with the audience her work was reaching, and is planning on more films in the future. The director (a woman, which is amazing enough for Chinese cinema) is also one of the first to be allowed to shoot a film with such dark material and given an international screening, uncensored by the government.

The film itself is deeply experimental, but never for an instant boring, despite sometimes hard to follow subtitles. A landmark achievement for Chinese film.
