I Am Not Madame Bovary 12A

Synopsis

★★★★ - The Times

After being duped by her ex-husband into a “fake divorce” scheme to get better housing, only for him to run off with someone else, a Chinese peasant woman Li (Bingbing) takes on the legal system.

Constantly underestimated by officials, Li decides to take her grievance up the bureaucracy chain all the way to the top of government.

A fresh and funny social satire from hugely successful Chinese director Feng Xiaogang, the film is uniquely framed in circles and scroll-like rectangular ratios to mimic traditional Chinese painting formats.
