A Touch Of Sin
An angry miner revolts against the corruption of his village leaders. A migrant worker at home for the New Year discovers the infinite possibilities a firearm can offer. A pretty receptionist at a sauna is pushed to the limit when a rich client assaults her. A young factory worker goes from job to job trying to improve his lot in life. Four people, four different provinces. A reflection on contemporary China: that of an economic giant slowly being eroded by violence.
"These four individuals and the incidents they were involved in remind me of King Hu’s martial arts films. (...) I also see this as a film about the sometimes hidden connections between people, that make me want to question the way our society has evolved. In this 'civilised' society that we have taken so long to evolve, what actually links one person with another?"
