A Touch of Sin

Touch of Sin

A film by Zhangke Jia
Starring Wu Jiang, Vivien Li, Lanshan Luo

A thrilling reflection on contemporary China: a society in which rampant economic development has ushered in an epidemic of violence.

An angry miner, enraged by the corruption of his village leaders, takes action. A rootless migrant discovers the infinite possibilities that owning a firearm can offer. A pretty receptionist working in a sauna is pushed to the limit when a wealthy client assaults her. And a young factory worker goes from one discouraging job to the next, only to face increasingly degrading circumstances. Four people, four different provinces.

A bitter, brutal, often brilliant exploration of violence and corruption in contemporary China. —Jon Frosch, The Atlantic
