Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 19th at 5:30 for A Woman, A Gun and a Noodle Shop at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Elizabeth wearing a gray Joan Jett t-shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Wang is a gloomy and cunning noodle shop owner in a desert town in China. Feeling neglected, Wang’s wife secretly goes out with his employee, Li. A timid man, Li reluctantly keeps the gun the landlady bought for ‘killing her husband later’. However, not a single move they make escapes the boss’s notice, and he decides to bribe patrol officer Zhang to kill the illicit couple. It looks like a perfect plan: the affair will come to a cruel but satisfying end… or so he thinks, but the equally wicked Zhang has an agenda of his own that will lead to even more violence. Note: Film is presented in Chinese (Mandarin) with English subtitles.
