10.21.2011 - News [Roast Pork Sliced From A Rusty Cleaver] (飲水思源)

This post was produced by Roast Pork Sliced From A Rusty Cleaver:

Variety: The Butcher's Wife review
"The Butcher's Wife" is a respectable but dramatically unrewarding debut for writer-director Gao Xiongjie, a veteran teacher of film and television arts at China's Central Academy of Drama. This story of a simple country man chasing his ambitious runaway wife to the city goes for low-key realism but is little more than a cautionary melodrama. Mixture makes for a dreary small-scale tragedy with one-note characters whose mismatched marriage is hard to root for.

With three major story threads and nary a ‘plot’ in sight, Life Without Principle witnesses a veteran filmmaking team brilliantly capturing the zeitgeist and seriously failing their screenwriting exam.

Recently, the production company behind the Taiwanese film "Black & White: Part 1", starring Mark Chao, Ivy Chen, Angelababy and mainland actor Huang Bo, released still shots of the film.

Horror suspense film titled "Blood Stained Shoes" is being promoted at the 20th Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Awards, with the production team and cast members taking to the red carpet for its first news conference held as part of the award ceremony, hosted in Hefei, Anhui province, south China, on October 20.
