Learn Chinese in China


Luxury Car 江城夏日

Recommended Posts


Gritty, honest, rather depressing, albeit well done. The film has won minor prizes, including some awards at Cannes 2006. 



Watched it on Amazon Video (from the US.) Here's the blurb: 



Echoing the reality of rural exodus and political upheaval in China, a man travels to the city of Wuhan, to fulfill his wife's last wish of seeing her son. But when he discovers his daughter working as an escort, he must re-evaluate the future of his family. Official selection of the prestigious Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. (Mandarin w. English subs)


Thick Wuhan accent in parts made it difficult to understand.
