Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: Chinese ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN, SPECIAL FEATURES: 3-DVD Set, Box Set, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Pickpocket (1998) Little pocket thief Wu never got away from the streets like his friends did. He realises that he is alone, as his old buddy doesn't invite him for his wedding. When he falls in love with a hooker he is forced to think about his future. Can he break with his criminal past? Platform (2000) Set in Fenyang, Shanxi Province, the film focuses on a group of amateur theatre troupe performers whose fate mirrors that of the general population in China as massive socio-economic changes sweep across the mainland. The film commences in 1979 with the troupe performing numbers idolizing Mao Zedong, ending in the '80s when the shows reflect the strong Western influences pervading China, covering a decade in which China saw tremendous changes. Unknown Pleasures (2002) Two unemployed slackers, neither with job prospects nor motivation, hang out in sheltered town in China trying to make sense of their aimless and uncertain futures. As youths, they struggle for individual freedom and the social responsibility that comes along with it. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Berlin International Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival, Vancouver International Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, ...Jia Zhang Ke Collection - 3-DVD Box Set ( Xiao Wu / Zhantai / Ren xiao yao ) ( Pickpocket (Pick pocket) / Platform / Unknown Pleasures )
