A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop

The East Asian Studies Center at the University of Indiana will screen Zhang Yimou's "A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop.

February 5, 2011 6:30pm to 12:00am

A Woman, A Gun and a Noodle Shop is a remake of the 1985 directorial debut of Joel and Ethan Coen's Blood Simple. Transposing the Coen Brothers’ celebrated mix of dark humor and riveting suspense to China, the film is helmed by Zhang Yimou (director of Red Sorghum, To Live, Hero, House of Flying Daggers, and other masterpieces), one of the most eminent directors of the “fifth generation.” This black comedy thriller is an exposé of how intense desires can consume humanity and the irony that life never submits to our calculations.

In Mandarin with English subtitles, 110 minutes, rated R.

Admission will be free, but tickets will be required. Tickets may be obtained through the IU Auditorium box office, Mon.-Fri., 10 a.m.-5 p.m. or in the IU Cinema lobby 30 minutes prior to the screening.
