From The Release:
Following the success of their recent theatrical titles, Love is All You Need, The Hunt and A Hijacking and the upcoming Pioneer and A Thousand Times Goodnight, Arrow Films is pleased to announce that they will release the Cannes-award winning crime-thriller, A Touch of Sin, in UK cinemas on 16th May 2014.
Having been nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and going on to win Best Screenplay, A Touch of Sin was inspired by four shocking (and true) events. Written and directed by master Jia Zhangke (The World, Still Life), a man widely regarded as “one of the best and most important directors in the world” (Richard Brody, The New Yorker), this reflection on capitalist China focuses on four people, living in four different provinces, who are driven to violent ends.
An angry miner, enraged by the corruption of his village, decides to take justice into his own hands. A rootless migrant discovers the infinite possibilities of owning a firearm; a receptionist working at a local sauna is pushed to the limit by a wealthy client; and a young factory worker goes from one discouraging job to the next, only to face increasingly degrading circumstances.
