Li Yuhe’s rural crime comedy, Absurd Accident, was certainly fun to take in this past summer. Cheng Cheng Films is finally sending out announcements this week going forward with a November 20 release in the U.S. on DVD, and I highly guarantee it’ll be a worthwhile treat to enjoy at home.
Bouncing with nail-biting suspense and ingenious humor, young Chinese filmmaker Li Yuhe’s feature debut portrays a puzzling crime happened in a rural small town, where greed, lust and wit battle it out in one night. It all starts from a sexually impotent motel owner hiring a pro to murder his cheating wife. Everything goes exactly as planned, until two blind daters, a robber, a policeman and a strange dead body unexpectedly arrive.
Absurd Accident is produced by Derek Yee and stars Xixu Chen, Ye Gao, Suxi Ren, Bo Dong and Yunfei Lou. Pre-orders are now up-and-running here and here, look it up and snag yourselves a copy…along with this one, in particular!
