Still A Touch of Sin

A Touch of Sin

Jia Zhangke Jia / CN, JP, FR, 2013 / 133 min.

Social drama, martial arts film and fable rolled into one. In a world that is adrift, economic superpower China is gradually being eroded by violence. The film’s style, effortlessly shifting from lyrically filmed landscapes and eruptions of violence to humour and tenderness, is equally hybrid. The film won the Award for Best Screenplay at Cannes.
