I Am Not Madame Bovary
DIRECTOR: FENG XIAOGANG
CAST: DONG CHENGPENG, FAN BINGBING, FAN WEI
The latest from Chinese king of comedy Feng Xiaogang is an incisive social satire examining corruption and divorce culture in Mainland China. Absurd and droll, it stars Fan Bingbing as we’ve never seen her—all dressed down—as a spurned peasant from the provinces, traveling to Beijing to battle in a decade-long campaign to get a divorce on her own particular terms at any expense. Feng’s most visually inventive and stylistically indelible film to date, it garnered awards at San Sebastian and Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year.
