Did You Know?


The dialogue of Sunken Plum is spoken in the Sichuanese language. The use of a local dialect is not new in the career of its directors since in the previous shorts of the trilogy, Ni Jing: Thou Shalt Not Steal (2013) and Floating Melon (2015), they deliberately ignored the official Mandarin language in order to use the dialect of the Sichuan province. Similar to their use of the Asturian language in the film Advent (IV) (2016), produced in Spain in 2016. Even though "Sichuanese" enjoys extensive use by more than 260 millions of China's population, and despite the huge differences between "Sichuanese" and "Mandarin", "Sichuanese" has not been elevated to the status of an official "language" and is merely considered to be a "dialect".
