She’s A Chinese

Mei (Huang Lu) a young village girl leads a monotonous life in her dusty hometown in rural China, unfulfilled she leaves for Beijing where she becomes the lover of a professional hit man. Tragedy strikes and he gets killed. Mei’s restless nature compels her to travel to England, where she drifts through a series of affairs including marrying a retired widow and becoming pregnant by a Muslim café-owner! Writer and filmmaker Xiaolu Guo uses She’s A Chinese (2010) to explore various themes including love and desire, alienation, personal journeys and tragedy. An interesting film narrated with titled chapters and a great soundtrack. An acting lesson in two languages from Huang Lu.
