‘Shun Li & The Poet’ (15)

AndreaSegre’s tender, subtle, award-winning drama tells the story of Shun Li, a Chinese immigrant working in a bar on a small island in the Veneto lagoon.

Though lonely at first Shun Li slowly strikes up a rapport with Bepi, a Slavic fisherman nicknamed ‘The Poet’, and the pair forge an unlikely yet intimate bond. However, both the local Italian community and Chinese immigrant population object to the relationship and they soon find themselves driven tragically apart…

Supported by impressive performances by Zhao Tao and Rade Sherbedgia, this sympathetic, evocative and profoundly humane drama has hailed Andrea Segre as an exciting new voice in contemporary cinema.

The drive for success, vertigo, competition and the inequality of the world we live in causes many people to be stressed out or depressed. Some burst.
This is a film about them…

★★★★★ ‘a riotously entertaining collection of short stories of people losing their self-control and self-respect’. Times

★★★★★ ‘The brilliance of the film lies in its combination of excess and ordinariness’. Independent

★★★★ ‘A delicious chocolate box of nastiness’. Guardian
