The blood hits the floor in this confronting look at modern china and the domestic conflict its newfound wealth has wrought. Following four characters from different provinces, A TOUCH OF SIN tells the story of a miner as he revolts against corruption, a migrant worker who finds possibility in a firearm, a receptionist assaulted by a rich client and a young factory worker desperate to improve his situation. With input from Takeshi Kitano’s production office, brutal flourishes and stories drawn from real-life Chinese headlines, acclaimed director Jia Zhangke has built an angry, gritty, beautifully shot drama that traverses the lurching superpower from Shanxi coalmines to the gaudy brothels in Dongguan.
