  • The Other Half

    2006. China. Directed by Ying Liang. Xiaofen lives in one of Southwestern China's rapidly growing cities, but her work interviewing clients and documenting cases for a law firm is merely routine. When not at work, she must deal with her down-and-out boyfriend, an on-the-lam drunk and gambler. Life is also hard for her girlfriends and her mother, and Xiaofen is increasingly distressed by what she witnesses around her. In his second feature film, Ying (Taking Father Home, 2005) playfully pits youth culture against tradition as he interrelates one woman's reality with the changing economic and social structures of contemporary China. In Mandarin; English subtitles. 111 min.
