Variety: Bachelor Mountain (Guanggun) review
Reinforcing his position as one of the world's superior nonfiction filmmakers, Yu Guangyi completes a landmark docu trilogy with the exquisitely observed and touching "Bachelor Mountain." Rounding out what came before with the rough-and-ready "Timber Gang" and the intense character study "Survival Song," Yu's look at the life and impossible love of a hardscrabble logger/laborer is his most emotionally felt work and, if fests are paying attention, should get Yu some worldwide love.
The makers of the film released a batch of new character posters today with the leading actor Tony Leung Chiu Wai being absent from the pictures.
Zhou Xun (Sina)
Up-and-coming cinematic artists Liang Yueming and Lu Jianqing will direct the film. This does raise questions though - as their debut film, how has it attracted a host of renowned stars? The answer lies in the screenplay.
