Synopsis


A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop
Love, betrayal, and murder take root in the deserts of China in this comedy drama from filmmaker Zhang Yimou. Wang (Ni Dahong) is an ill-tempered tyrant who runs a noodle shop not far from the Great Wall. Wang treats his employees like dirt and isn't much friendlier to his long-suffering wife (Yan Ni), who soothes her nerves by having an affair with Li (Xiao Shenyang), one of Wang's cooks. The wife would like to take Wang out of the picture, and one day she gives Li a gun, suggesting that he kill Wang so they can live in peace. A crooked cop named Zhang learns about the plot and tells Wang about the lovers, offering to kill them for a price. The next day, Zhang returns with evidence that Wang's wife and his cook have been shot, but shoots Wang before he can pay him. Zhang is about to empty out Wang's safe when he discovers he wasn't the only one with a plan to double-cross the despised noodle baron. Inspired by Joel and Ethan Coen's Blood Simple, San Qiang Pai An Jing Qi (aka A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop) was an official selection at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Top Gun was already one of my favorite movies and it got better with 3D. This is the best that TG has ever looked. The added 3D really shines in the aerial footage. The added depth throughout is good as well. No real complaints, considering the age of the film. You should definitely check it out.

    Not a bad film. Great cinematography and good audio. It's defitnitly a slower paced movie and not a ton of action. However the production of the film is fantastic. The story is based of the Coen brother's film BLOOD SIMPLE only set in early China.

    A visually impressive achievement but I found it slow. The plot was solid and amusing. The characters outrageous, which is a good thing, but this did not save it in the end.
