In this documentary Brazilian director Walter Salles followed Chinese director Jia ZhangKe as he revisited his home town and other locations where Jia`s films were shot. The film also includes excerpts from some of Jia`s past films, way back from two decades ago. If you are not a fan of Jia and have not seen any of his work (not particularly well known in the West), this film will probably bore you to hell as the camera pointed, most of the times, to old houses and the dilapidated part of the town. But if you are a fan (Salles is a big one) like myself you will find the content interesting as you get to know more about the background to some of Jia`s work. In Chinese with subtitles.
