I really have no idea what’s wrong with the movie titles these days. What’s wrong with the good old short titles? Why do I have to write one word hundred of times?
I mean – look at this one for example – People Mountain People Sea. It’s like – what was the last movie you’ve seen lately? Oh, I watched “People Mountain People Sea” yesterday. Oh, really, there’s a sequel to the People Mountain? Blah! Do something about that, please!
I would like to start a very little chat about Cai Shangjun’s second feature People Mountain People Sea, which will be shown at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, the movie inspired by a true crime story, and already described as a bold and unsettling revenge film takes a road trip down the dark corners of modern Chinese society.
As you already guess, we have some cool photos from the movie, and the trailer as well, so make sure to check out this gripping story of justice and revenge.
Just in case you missed our full list of Venice winners, People Mountain People Sea won the Silver Lion prize.
In addition to that, here’s the official synopsis part for the whole thing:
“Tie knows in his heart that he must help find his younger brother’s killer, despite his own problems. He has only recently come home penniless to the remote mountain community after years away working in the city.
Although the police identified the murderer as ex-con Xiao from a neighboring village, they were not able to stop him from escaping. Searching for the murderer, Tie begins a journey which will unleash his long-suppressed inner pain and rage.”
