While not nearly as controversial as his 1998 feature, Frozen, Wang Xiaoshuai's So Close to Paradise was still held up for several years and re-edited by Chinese censors, wary of the impact of its bleak portrait of urban corruption. It tells the story of two friends who find their lives at the crossroads when they move to the city. As one becomes involved in the criminal underworld, he pulls his friend into a fatal scheme. "...a film that is wise, fatalistic and romantic in just the right proportions--in the best noir tradition" (Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times). In Mandarin with English subtitles.
