An antidote to China's weightier arthouse output, settling the stomach after too much stolid social realism, effervescent as an alka-seltzer.
Yan's characters, regardless of which side of the social hierarchy they fall on, are layered and feel like real people rather than caricatures.
Dead Pigs is an acerbic commentary on modern China, wrapped in an absurdist comedy and an oddball family drama
It is bitingly satirical, trenchantly observant, and features a cast of characters that runs the entire social gamut. It is also deeply rooted in actual, documented events.
Dead Pigs is a weird, weird ride. Weird in a good way? Sure, sometimes. The film is unique.
... offers a mosaic meditation on money and class in modern China.
Demonstrating a light touch - underscored by a whimsy-leaning score and overtly comic moments, but never delving into flimsiness or farce - Yan handles her chosen topic, and the tapestry of tales it's woven through, with care.
