Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A masterful film from Jia Zhang-ke, the renowned director of Still Life and The World, 24 City chronicles the dramatic closing of a once-prosperous state-owned aeronautics factory in Chengdu, a city in Southwest China, and its conversion into a sprawling luxury apartment complex. Bursting with poetry, pop songs and striking visual detail, the film weaves together unforgettable stories from three generations of workers some real, some played by actors (including Joan Chen) into a vivid portrait of the human struggle behind China s economic miracle.

Review

The most important filmmaker in the world. When you see the earth from outer space, it's said, the only visible human artifact is the Great Wall of China. When the early twenty-first century is someday viewed from a comparable distance, the main artifacts to be seen may be the films of Jia Zhangke. --Stuart Klawans, THE NATION

Often amazing and intricately structured... Without nostalgia but with sensitivity and depth of feeling, Mr. Jia is documenting a country and several generations that are disappearing before the world s eyes... Mr. Jia is one of the most original filmmakers working today, creating movies about a country that seems like a sequel. --Manohla Dargis, THE NEW YORK TIMES

Surprisingly engrossing. --V.A. Musetto, NEW YORK POST
