The Case
Filmfest 2007

Middle-aged innkeeper Da Shang begins a regular day, but through the window of his bathroom he sees a suitcase floating on the river. The mysterious object elicits a degree of excitement from the bored man and at first he hides it from his wife. When he finally gets a chance to open the case, he finds it filled with frozen body parts. Enter into the picture a strange couple (Jia Zhangke's Xia Wu and a beautiful woman) and all hell breaks loose. At once a man's wet dreams and nightmares, THE CASE may well be China's first genre-bending domestic drama with some great hilarious moments. Hong Kong International Film Festival 2007
