About the Director

After his graduation from the Beijing Film Academy, Wang spent some time working under the PRC studio system before starting out on his own. His first film, The Days (1993), was an independent feature shot on the weekends in Beijing, and starring Wang s friends as two artists. He followed up The Days with Frozen (filmed in 1994, but not released until 1997). Frozen, another foray into the art world of Beijing, was made under the pseudonym of Wu Ming (literally, No Name; or Anonymous). In contrast to both Frozen and The Days, which both took place in Beijing, Wangs next film, So Close to Paradise (1997), saw him return to Wuhan to film a story of two migrant workers who become involved in a kidnapping. Wang followed up Paradise with the family comedy The House in 1999. Despite the numerous films to his credit at this point, it was not until Beijing Bicycle that Wang rose to truly international success. The winner of the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, Beijing Bicycle wowed critics with its story of a youth's search for his stolen bicycle, particularly with its shades of Vittorio De Sica's 1948 The Bicycle Thief. After the success of Beijing Bicycle, Wang made Drifters (2003), which screened at the Cannes Film Festival in competition for the Prix Un Certain Regard. It didn t win, but his next film, Shanghai Dreams (2005), two years later, won Cannes's Prix du Jury award. 2008 saw the premiere of Wang's newest film, In Love We Trust (also known as Left Right) in the Berlin Film Festival. A modern drama about a divorced couple, the film had missed a scheduled showing at both the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and the 2007 Venice Film Festival. Wang's next planned project, 11 Flowers, recently won the Pusan Promotion Prize for $20,000.

This is a good drama movie; main plot is about two divorced couple (who has since remarried) are reunited after their daughter in common is diagnosed with leukemia. After many unsuccessful treatment, the mother resorts to having another child in hope of using the cord blood to match for a bone marrow transplant. She first tries being inseminated, but after three failed attempts, she finally resorts to sleeping with her ex-husband.

At first, the movie seemed like it was focus on the child and how the mother is willing to go all out to protect and heal her. But as the story develops, it's focus is on the adults and the mental stress they have to go through to save a child.

The four primary actors did an excellent job of using their body language to convey lot of messages without dialog. For example, in one scene, the mother is shown flushing the toilet with red substance shortly after trying to be inseminated, and experiences an emotional breakdown. The mother's new husband can come across as "unreal" as it can be very hard for any husband to put up and accept the fact that their wife purposely slept with their ex-husband just for the fact to have a baby. And, the husband goes further and tells her afterwards that he's willing to raise it and accept the future baby as his own even though the wife never tells him that she slept with the ex-husband.

The movie ending was the weakest point. I felt the movie just suddenly dropped when we see the ex-couple goes back to their respective home and have dinner. The husband has dinner with his new wife without any words, and the wife goes home and has dinner with her husband. There's no mention of their relationship after, and no mention if she is pregnant or if the cord blood was able to save the daughter. This should have been some closure to this matter, as this was the focal point of the movie and the main plot that brought the ex's back together for another one-night stand.

IN LOVE WE TRUST begins as a conventional soaper with a sick child whose parents soon learn that this child has leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant to survive. Director Wang Xiaoshua chooses to avoid conventional drama and instead steers the plot toward the adults. First we learn that the child HeHe (Zhang Chuqian) has not been raised by her biological parents. The mother Mei Zhu (Liu Weiwei) divorced the father Xiao Lu four years earlier. He has since remarried to Dong Fan (Yu Nan). Mei Zhu is now married to Xiao Lei and they now raise HeHe. The four adults are decent folk with all concerned reasonably satisfied in their respective marriages. Dong Fan, however, wants a child of her own and is unwilling to accept the excuses of Xiao Lu who does not wish any more children in his life. The problem begins with HeHe's illness. It is as if the need for a sibling has ripped apart the lives of four adults. We see HeHe in the hospital. She is a lovely child and her loveliness serves to underscore the brutal choices that all four must unwillingly confront.

First, Mei Zhu must ask her ex-husband to donate his sperm for artificial insemination. He is reluctant but gives in, knowing that HeHe's life is at stake. Then Xiao Lu must convince his current wife to go along with the process. Dong Fan is bitterly opposed but in the end she gives in to the inevitable conclusion that her husband has no choice. Mei Zhu's husband does not like the idea either but he agrees for the same reason. And it is right here that director Wang Xiaoshuai presents the stark theme that the inevitability of any crisis is a function of how desperate the players are.

First things first, I am a big fan of the Film Movement DVD library of foreign and indie movies, releasing these films in the US that otherwise would never find an audience here.

"In Love We Trust" (2008 release from China; 115 min.) stars off rather confusingly, or better said misleadingly. We follow a married couple as they are dealing with the illness of their young daughter. As the movie develops in the first half four, we get a clearer picture of the overall situation: this is in fact a mother and stepfather, and the biological father (who also is remarried) is drawn into the picture. The young girl needs a marrow boon transplant and the best possible match is from a sister or brother. It puts the married couples into an emotional dilemma: can/will the original parents, now both remarried, get together again with the purpose of having another child so that their daughter can survive long-term? What a premise! I don't want to spoil the plot any further, you'll just have to see how it all plays out, although I will say that it is worth your while.

The movie develops slowly, and I mean that as a compliment. This is MILES away from your standard Hollywood fare. I finally crossed the line not long ago and have started my subscription to Film Movement, and now am getting a new foreign/indie movie every month. Best decision ever! Shoul've done this years ago. Meanwhile, if you are in the mood for a good foreign movie, you cannot go wrong with this. "In Love We Trust" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
