A WOMAN, A GUN AND A NOODLE SOUP by Zhang Yimou, R, 95 min., in Mandarin with English subtitles.
"Alternately comic and terrifying, 'Woman/Gun/Noodle' is a dazzling act of transliteration." – SALON.COM
A Woman, A Gun And A Noodle Shop is a remake of the 1985 directorial debut of Joel and Ethan Coen, Blood Simple. Transposing the Coen Brother's celebrated mix of dark humor and riveting suspense to China, the film is helmed by Zhang Yimou (director of The Red Sorghum, To Live, Hero, House Of Flying Daggers and other masterpieces), one of the most eminent directors of the Fifth Generation. This black comedy
thriller is an expose of how intense desires can consume humanity, and the irony that life never submits to our calculations.
