aka: Chûgoku no chôjin
Japan 1998, 119 minutes
Dir. Takashi Miike
In Japanese with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama / Fantasy


Aroview: Visually rich and accomplished drama set around a parallel journey by a businessman and a yakuza gangster to a remote Chinese highland in search of a rumoured vein of rare jade. Unusually normative tale for dir. Miike (AUDITION), this evokes its subject with a visionary touch recalling Werner Herzog - as it turns out, the village inhabitants of the region may be able to fly with 'wings' fashioned from bamboo.
