The Breaking Ice

Anthony Chen – China – 2023

CHF 21.90 / EUR 20.40

In cold wintry Yanji, a city on China's northern border, young urbanite Haofeng, visiting from Shanghai, feels lost and adrift. By chance, he goes on a tour led by Nana, a charming tour guide who instantly fascinates him. She introduces him to Xiao, a personable but frustrated restaurant worker. The three bond quickly over a drunken weekend. Confronting their individual traumas, their frozen desires slowly thaw as they seek to liberate themselves from an icy world.

«With a nod towards the seductive swing of the French New Wave, Anthony Chen creates an arresting portrait of three young people trapped within their own existential crises.» The Guardian
