Only the river flows

This moody Asian-noir crime thriller, laced with dark humour, charts a detective’s attempts to identify a serial killer in a rural town as the secrets of the locals are gradually revealed.

A quick arrest after a murder sits uneasily with chief of police Ma Zhe (Yilong Zhu), who thinks there’s more to the story. Soon the detective is on the trail of a serial killer in a rural town in this stylish Asian-noir crime thriller set in mid-1990s China. As Ma starts to dig for the truth, gradually the secrets of the town start to surface and he finds himself on the trail of the mysterious and elusive homeless ‘Mad Man’ (Kang Chunlei). Shujun Wei delivers a moody puzzle box of a film, laced with dark humour and social commentary.

Mandarin with English subtitles.
