A brilliant Chinese apocalypse WITHOUT A PROBLEM!!!
10 December 2016 | by alberto86930See all my reviews

Adapted by Feng Mei, a Best Screenplay Award winner of 62nd Cannes Film Festival, this ordinary seemingly small tale written by one of the most significant figures of 20th-century Chinese literature,Lao She,was not only a story of a farm manager dealing with livelihood during war time in 1940, but also a portrait of the contemporary Chinese society. The film contains massive full shots, making the spectator feel like watching Beijing opera,and most actors are rural folks without professional training. Slow and flat as it is, the interaction between the farm manager,who's smooth and slick in establishing social relations, the brazen self-called artist, the decent successor manager,and those negligent lazy fellows is indeed humorous,ironic,subtle,yet sharply points out the sophistication problems of the Chinese society. The leading actor Wei Fan described the characters as "Still waters run deep", every single person in this film simply represents each specific class of society, struggling within their strength just to survive in this seemingly ordinary farm while everyone spilling with those words "No problem".
