Xiao Jia rentre à la maison | Xiao Jia Hui Jia | 小贾回家

Damien Ounouri France, 2008

msmichel's rating of the film Xiao Jia Going Home

Those hoping for a complex examination of the films of Jia Zhang Ke will have to look elsewhere. What we have is a basic puff piece that follows Jia around his hometown reminiscing mostly about his first features 'Xiao Yu' and 'Platform' giving short shift to the subsequent films including the just completed, at the time, 'Still Life'. A cure for insomnia for some.
