THE WILD GOOSE LAKE
Just like in his Berlinale winner BLACK COAL, THIN ICE, Chinese director Yi’nan Diao again mixes film noir elements elegantly with a hard-hitting portrait of life in his home country. A gangster is on the lam from the police and the competition in the megacity of Wuhan, with a femme fatale at his side, whose motivations remain unclear. And nobody is getting away unscathed. Neon-drenched nights in the rain, breathless chase sequences and tight-lipped protagonists – Diao has everything to offer that fans of the genre want.
