Four twenty-something guys in Guangzhou live with their love and dreams, ease and bewilderment as they go about their everyday lives. Watching them on screen is like seeing them enter the movie from their own lives, dragging their friends, family and compatriots with them, before they go back to their lives at the end of proceedings. The film allows them to act as themselves on screen and so we see them in their natural environment, opening up a new perspective on living in a Chinese city.
“Something in Blue” will appeal to fans of the Korean director Hong Sang-Soo, as it looks at the vagaries of human relationships in a series of sketches of everyday life. With naturalistic acting and a lack of theatricality, this is a real insight into life in Guangzhou, a fascinating city with equally interesting people.
