Crossroads
(Shizi jieotu)

by SHEN Xiling

Crossroads-01

The young and penniless student Zhao lives in a rented room and, every month, has trouble paying his rent. By chance, he finds a job in a press agency. The beautiful Yang moves into the room next door, separated from his only by a wooden partition. Before seeing each other face to face, they meet in a different way…

In this bittersweet comedy, where two dynamic and mischievous actors set the pace, the director Shen Xiling shows outstanding audacity, shifting the scenes from one tone to another. He died at a very young age and this is his first and only film.
