O. Henry would have been proud...Stunning...
This is a phenomenal short film. I saw "Chinese Dream" at the IFP Los Angeles Film Festival, about a month after it won the festival in San Francisco. It is visually rich, evocative of Wong Kar Wai's film-making, particularly "In The Mood For Love". The film would have made the short story writer O.Henry very proud...its fable-like quality, and its innocent lessons. And the authenticity maintained throughout was impressive, particularly considering the foreign-ness of the material. Victor Quinaz is a very talented young writer-director, who I had the pleasure of meeting after the screening. Charming, intelligent, passionate. He and his producing team seem to have bottomless energy and big plans. I understand they are working on a feature film, which I look forward to. Keep your eyes open for these guys.
