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.
Culminating an intricately woven plot from debut writer/director Li Yuhe, Absurd Accident has plenty going for itself in the unimaginable, silly and darkly comedic as intended. The story itself uses the zig-zag routine, challenging you to follow along with each chapter as it unfolds with each terrible decision, plot twist and point of calamity.
Li Yuhe’s feature debut Absurd Accident, drew some enthused reactions from critics and also tended to festival crowds in Shanghai and parts of the U.S.. Cheng Cheng Films is proudly taking the mantle for its U.S. distribution with a release now set for July 18 on Amazon Prime Video and VoD platforms wherever it’s made available.
Absurd Accident is executive produced by Derek Yee with a cast that enlists Xixu Chen, Ye Gao, Suxi Ren, Bo Dong and Yunfei Lou.
