Movie Info

A tragedy has unusual consequences for one family in this drama from Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yiba. Xian-chuen (Tan Jian-ci) is a teenager whose life is thrown in chaos when he learns that his father has died; the man worked as a cab driver, and an accident sent his car plunging into a river, drowning the driver. However, his passenger survived the wreck, and Xian-chuen's mother Li (Jiang Wenli) invites the traumatized woman to live with their family out of a sense of moral obligation. The survivor of the accident was Su-dan (Karen Mok), who works as a low-rent call girl at a dance hall; her leg was broken in the wreck, and she and her wheelchair become a conspicuous presence in the house. At first, Xian-chuen makes no effort to hide his disgust with Su-dan, while Li tries to keep the peace between them, but in time he begins to feel sympathy for her, and Su-dan shows a familial affection towards the young man. But as Xian-cheun and Su-dan become closer, Li begins to suspect her son's interest is more romantic than platonic. Mi Guo (aka Lost Indulgence) received its American premiere at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
