It helps that the central performers are experienced actors, and that they know their roles so well.

Presents a side of contemporary Chinese life that many outsiders will be surprised to know exists, and does so with an artistry that also smacks of revelation.

The asylum material is gripping, as are the scenes of Jia with his family.

Ultimately engages less for its story of actorly existential despair than for its boundary-hopping formal innovations and glimpse into another kind of Chinese 'cultural revolution.'

If Quitting isn't worthy of affection exactly, it's worthy of respect, as director Zhang Yang plays with the structural elements of the story as well as notions of fiction and fact.

It further declares its director, Zhang Yang of Shower, as a boldly experimental, contemporary stylist with a bright future.

That dogged good will of the parents and 'vain' Jia's defoliation of ego, make the film touching despite some doldrums.

Jia's performance is so unsparing and intense -- and the film so compassionate and chaste in its approach to a life lost and recovered -- that Quitting ultimately satisfies.

Quitting delivers a sucker-punch, and its impact is all the greater beause director Zhang's last film, the cuddly Shower, was a non-threatening multi-character piece centered around a public bath house.
