A Touch of Sin

Dir. Jia Zhang-ke China and Japan 133 min Not Rated

2013 Kino Lorber

Madarin and Cantonese with English subtitles

Inspired by four shocking (and true) events that forced the world’s fastest growing economy into a period of self-examination, A TOUCH OF SIN is an explosive commentary on modern China. Written and directed by master filmmaker Jia Zhangke (THE WORLD, STILL LIFE), this daring, poetic and grand-scale film focuses on four characters, each living in different provinces, who are driven to violent ends.

An angry miner, enraged by widespread corruption in his village, decides to take justice into his own hands. A rootless migrant discovers the infinite possibilities of owning a firearm. A young receptionist, who dates a married man and works at a local sauna, is pushed over the edge by an abusive client. And a young factory worker goes from one discouraging job to the next, only to face increasingly degrading circumstances.
