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

Damien Ounouri France, 2008

Lucas's rating of the film Xiao Jia Going Home

Shortly after completion of his then most recent pictures, "Dong" and "Still Life", Jia Zhangke goes to his hometown of Fenyang for a day, visits some places where his early films were filmed and reflects on them and the subsequent ones. Some of his collaborators appears on talking heads interviews. Loved the irony of Jia talking of cellphones and computers as prison and then answering a phone call.
