The Spring Film Festival 2009 which is hosted by Shangri-la Plaza, Ateneo Celadon and the Ricardo Leong Center for Chinese Studies in partnership with the Confucius Institute  present this year’s Spring Film Festival. Featuring 4 shows, and other available presentations in lieu of the Lunar New Year. Due to many complaints that the schedule of the shows cannot be seen, I’ll be enumerating the schedules as well as the explanation of the movies, for those who are not able to see the picture clearly as seen here.

Luxury Car directed by: Jiang Cheng

A country schoolteacher reaching retirement comes to Wuhan in search of his only son His dying wife has requested to see her boy one last time. He is met by his daughter Yanhong who introduces him to her boyfriend, and a policeman who sympathizes with his plight and agrees to help him find his son. Things get complicated when the policeman recognizes the boyfriend, who drives a luxury car, for his involvement in a past crime. The film explores the generational conflict i modern China between parents brought up under traditional communist values and their grown-up children now accustomed to a socially freer existence.

All the Way directed by: Shi RunJiu

An innocent is drawn into a life of crime by a woman’s wiles in this drama from China. Wang (Jiang Wu) is a naive truck diver who while hauling freight one day gives a ride to Molly (Karen Mok), a pretty girl who works at a beauty salon. What Wang doesn’t know is that Molly’s boyfriend is a professional thief. Through his generosity he is drawn into a heist planned by Molly and her significant other; when the crime attracts the attention of the police, Wang finds himself sinking deeper into hot water. All the Way also features Chang Cheng-yu. Guang Yue and Qi Zhi.
