SHUN LI AND THE POET

SHUN LI AND THE POET

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Part of Europe We Love You, this month on Curzon12. Andrea Segre's intimate drama tells the story of Shun Li, a Chinese immigrant forced to move from Rome in order to work in a bar on a small island in the Veneto lagoon. Though lonely at first, she meets Bepi, a Slavic fisherman, nicknamed the Poet, who befriends her. However, the locals are not so happy about this. Tao Zhao and Rade Serbedzija are impressive as the oddly matched pairing in this evocative, profoundly humane and sympathetic drama. ★★★★ "Finds a fresh angle on the travails of dispossessed immigrants" - Trevor Johnston, Time Out
