Content Type: Movie
One of the most extraordinary films from an extraordinary director, The Bird People In China uses magic realism to express human yearning and frustration.
We journey with the Japanese salary man, and the dept-collecting yakuza on a journey to investigate a jade mine, which turns into a search for the bird people, but ultimately becomes a voyage of discovery to the core values of modern man.
Never lacking pace, and building his narrative from his normal ragbag of materials, in this scenically stunning film, Miike once again turns his comic vision towards the only truly overwhelming adventure... the hunt for value.
