WFC China: 三峡好人

Oo. I quite like this film. It’s very languid. And it seems straightforward, but things sort of keep happening on the margins that … probably aren’t.

It’s a serious, but whimsical film.

So it’s very nice. But it’s not without its problems. Tao Zhao is great, but many of the minor characters are played by very awkward actors.

But there are just so many things here that are great, so I’m dicing:

Still Life. Zhangke Jia. 2006. China.

Banana Dynasty

  • 8 parts Moutai
  • 4 parts Pisang Ambon
  • 3 parts sweet vermouth
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters

Shake with ice and pour into tumbler. Garnish with an orange peel.

I had to do some substitutions. It was supposed to be Giffards and La Quintinye Rouge.

That would probably have been better.
