Zhang Yimou’s latest offering, COMING HOME, looks to be a very powerful and unforgettable film, and that’s based solely on this subtle and moving teaser trailer. Yimou, director of HERO, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS, RIDING ALONE FOR THOUSANDS OF MILES and THE ROAD HOME, has had a very prolific career where he has mixed martial arts with calm dramas, and even found time for a BLOOD SIMPLE remake in the form of A WOMAN, A GUN AND A NOODLE SHOP.
His latest stars Gong Li and Chen Daoming. Chen stars a husband forced into marriage, who soon escapes to America, only to return to face his family and the consequences. COMING HOME is all set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and will hopefully get international distribution soon after. The use of simple but stunning shots, backed up by a beautiful piano score, have placed this high on my Watch List.
