When small-time mob leader Zhou Zenong (Chinese superstar Hu Ge) accidentally kills a cop, a dead-or-alive bounty is placed on his head, forcing him on the lam from both the police as well as dangerous gangsters out for the reward. Hiding out in China’s densely populated (and deeply divided) Wuhan province, Zhou becomes entangled with a beautiful, enigmatic woman who has mysterious intentions of her own.
The eagerly anticipated follow-up to acclaimed director Diao Yinan’s 2014 Berlinale winning neo-noir, THE WILD GOOSE LAKE toppled box office records in Diao’s native China.
Featuring gorgeous, neon-drenched cinematography and bursts of shocking, expertly choreographed action, THE WILD GOOSE LAKE is spellbinding, brilliant, and downright Hitchcockian.
"...THE WILD GOOSE LAKE may just end up being the last word in Chinese crime noir, because it does not want (or need) to be anything else… Suddenly, China feels like the noirest place on Earth." —Jessica Kiang, Variety “...The movie exhilirates.” —Glenn Kenny, Critic’s Pick, New York Times "Shot with a gloriously over-the-top noirish flair, this is stuff that would make Ridley Scott drool. Droplets of rain, sharp shadows, slats of colour and moody mist coat the entire film, resulting in a dream-like haze that’s as beckoning as it is unsettling… With elegant violence, emotional richness and a complex yet coherent storyline, this is a rare bit of crime thriller treat that truly pays off.." —Jason Gorber, Slash Film
