Terracotta Festival will to hold the European premiere of Chinese movie INSEPARABLE directed by Dayyan Eng, featuring Daniel Wu and Kevin Spacey.
INSEPARABLE tells the story of hopeless 30 year old Li (Wu), who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a strange American ex-pat, Chuck(Kevin Spacey in excellent comic form). They first meet when Chuck foils Li’s attempt at suicide, claiming to be his neighbour. He takes Li under his wing, gradually helping with his troubles at work, with life in general and his relationship woes with his wife, Pang (Gong), an investigative reporter who suffers from extreme mood swings. But is Chuck really who he says he is? And why do Li and Chuck “patrol the streets”
like superheros late in to the night…?
What clearly comes out of the Terracotta Festival line-up this year is the further increase in cross-border collaborations and a perfect example is this black comedy that sees Kevin Spacey as the first Hollywood star to appear in an all-China financed production. The film official release in China is due on May 2012.
Director says that he made the film to help working people relieve stress and open doors into the mind of a new generation of Chinese.
Dayyan Eng (aka Wu Shixian to audiences in China) is a Chinese-American writer-director with a distinguished international background. He studied film in the US and transferred to the prestigious Beijing Film Academy where he finished his undergraduate studies in directing.
