After his picture The Road to Mandalay, Burmese director Midi Zhao turned his attention to a completely different genre, psychological thriller, with Nina Wu. The stylised and gripping #metoo-referencing work tells the story of an actress who loses her mind after suffering humiliation and violence on her path to fame.
Director Takashi Miike’s wildly entertaining First Love blends romance, violence and comedy. Miike enjoyed a lot of success with this “Japanese Pulp Fiction” at the Directors’ Fortnight at last year’s Cannes.
