(Cathy Yen, China 2018, 130 minutes, subtitles)
A smart, vibrant take on the huge changes taking place in China as dodgy, get-rich-quick developments flatten neighbourhoods and break down the traditional bonds of families and communities. Linked by a mysterious epidemic of dead pigs dumped into the river, this mosaic-like comedy charts the misadventures of diverse Shanghai citizens; a bumbling pig farmer, a sensitive waiter, an expat architect, a disenchanted rich girl. A sassy ‘thoroughly modern’ heroine who runs her own beauty parlour, Candy Wang is also determined to save her family home from being knocked down. This cleverly weaves together a number of stories that reflect on the old and the new China to produce a fascinating picture of money and class in a city in flux.
