Wo Bu Shi Pan Jin Lian (I Am Not Madame Bovary)
The sheer filming elegance of Feng Xiaogang dovetails perfectly with Fan Bingbing’s powerful lead performance as a woman, who takes on Chinese bureaucracy, as she stubbornly fights to restore her honour after a false divorce and charges of sexual misdeeds. The film is presented in a round frame, which helps give a deeper sense of peering into the troubled life of village woman Li Xuelian (Fan Bingbing) as she fights her way up the convoluted Chinese legal ladder to seek justice. It is a beautifully structured film, blessed with a playful dark humour.
