Suzhou River (China)

WEDNESDAY August 10, 2016 |   Pre-screening performance begins at 7PM


Suzhou River (China)
Directed by Lou Ye; 2000, 83 mins.

Chinese filmmaker Lou Ye calls Shanghai’s mysterious Suzhou River “the blood of the city” – as it cuts through the seedy nightclubs, abandoned warehouses and criminal underworld of this romantic film noir. The story of a motorcycle messenger who is hired to kidnap an alluring young woman with whom he falls in love, SUZHOU RIVER has echoes of VERTIGO, riffing on its themes of voyeurism, mistaken identity, and sexual obsession. “A stylish, circuitous tale of obsessive love…invokes the keening romanticism of vintage Wong Kar-wai.” – Dennis Lim, Village Voice

Programmed by Film Forum.
