The Other Half / Ying Liang

Xiaofen works in the office of a law firm in one of the explosively growing cities of southwestern China. That sounds more impressive than it is. Her work is made up of listening to female clients and documenting their cases. Xiaofen herself does not have fewer problems than these women. She feels anxious and insecure and not without reason: the man she lives with disappears suddenly and may have a murder on his conscience. Xiaofen tries to get him to come back home. The film follows the vicissitudes of Xiaofen and also lets us hear from her clients. The complaints about household quarrels that Xiaofen hears are told straight into the camera and provide an riveting picture of the problems (of women) in China.
