Product description

Product Description

The impressive directorial debut of Yinan Diao (writer of the acclaimed comedy drama Shower), UNIFORM is a taut thriller that exposes the corrupting influence of poverty on a society beset by industrial decay and urban despair. With the local factory closed and his ailing father unemployed, street tailor Xiao Jian finds himself unable to pay his family's bills. When a laundered police-officer's shirt remains uncollected, he decides to play the role of cop, with unexpected results. Extorting payments from drivers who break minor traffic laws, attracting the attention of a young woman who works in a CD store and suddenly becoming visible to the world at large, Xiao Jian also discovers the terrible cost of leading such a precarious double life. One of the defining 'underground' films of the Chinese Sixth Generation, Uniform deftly balances social comment with an intimate character study of a man desperate enough to risk everything in order to escape the life he is trapped in.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I watch a lot of world cinema and so hoped this would be a good addition to my China collection. First it is in Mandarin and the translation seems very good. However it is filmed in some sort of video which gives it that East European porn flick quality, without the bedroom gymnastics for diversion.

The plot involves a tailors son who takes in a police mans shirt for washing and ironing and when he fails to collect it, our hero starts wearing it to impress a certain lady and to extort money for minor traffic offences. I would like to say hilarity and plot development ensue, but it doesn't. This film has won three awards but I was hard pushed to work out what for. It shows this province of China as being hot, dirty, with poor adverts everywhere for rubbish Coca Cola brands and an underlying threat of meaningless violence. Not a place that begs a visit and his 'girl' is leading a double life as some sort of reluctant hooker. There is a stab at dealing with police brutality and the corruption of the work force system and the universal poverty but other than that it seems worlds apart from anything produced in the West and I suppose for that alone it is definitely worth a viewing, but it was clearly made on a shoestring and you could not watch it twice.
