A Touch of Sin (2013)

A Touch of Sin (2013)






An angry miner revolts against the corruption of his village leaders. A migrant worker at home for the New Year discovers the infinite possibilities a firearm can offer. A pretty receptionist at a sauna is pushed to the limit when a rich client assaults her. A young factory worker goes from job to job trying to improve his lot in life. Four people, four different provinces. A reflection on contemporary China: an economic giant slowly being eroded by violence.

The horizon-stretching scenery, shimmeringly captured by cinematographer Yu Lik-Wai, will make you draw breath, in awe but also fear. In Jia’s film, China is cold and almost unnavigably vast; a place where sin may be the the only thing we have to keep us warm.
