What Woman Want

The University of Michigan Center for Chinese Studies presents a screening of "What Women Want" as part of their Electric Shadows: 2016 Contemporary Chinese Film Series.

October 11, 2016 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Sponsored by the Confucius Institute and Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies at U-M, Electric Shadows: 2016 Contemporary Chinese Film Series will feature five popular Chinese films released in recent years.
What Women Want Synopsis:
This light-hearted film is a remake of 2000 romantic comedy film What Women Want starring Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt. The plot is almost identical as the Hollywood version, but the story takes places at a Beijing advertising agency. An arrogant, narcissistic ad executive, played by Andy Lau, has his fated freak accident, which gives him a very special gift (or maybe a curse) of being able to read women’s thoughts. He misuses his new gift to cheat and promote himself, but he realizes that he is falling in love with his competitor.
