Movie Info

A man looking for a job gets a family in return in this low-key drama. Yu Dagnag is a laborer who has just lost his job in a factory, and suddenly finds himself with no income and no immediate way to support himself. While eating at a noodle shop, Yu spies a baby with a note pinned to its clothes; it seems the child's mother is Feng, a streetwalker willing to pay 200 yuan each month to anyone willing to watch her baby while she's earning a living. With no spouse or roommate to bother and few immediate financial prospects, Yu takes Feng up on the offer, telling his puzzled neighbors that the baby is his nephew. Before long, Yu finds that he likes looking after the baby, and Feng finds that she likes her new babysitter; Feng eventually moves in with Yu, and his financial situation brightens when he finds work repairing bicycles. But Side, a criminal whose underworld activities have been curtailed by a bout with leukemia, is interested in claiming the 200 yuan Feng was offering for watching the baby, and when she and Yu refuse to let him have the baby, Side takes matters into his own desperate hands. Anyangde Guer stars Zhu Jie, Sun Guilin, and Yue Senyi; it was written and directed by Wang Chao, and was screened at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival as part of the Directors' Fortnight series. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
