Bouncing with nail-biting suspense and ingenious humor, young Chinese filmmaker Li Yuhe's feature debut portrays a puzzling crime happened in a rural small town, where greed, lust and wit battle it out in one night. It all starts from a sexually impotent motel owner hiring a pro to murder his cheating wife. Everything goes exactly as planned, until two blind daters, a robber, a policeman and a strange dead body unexpectedly arrive.

"In the tradition of Chinese writers like Lu Xun, Li offers a hilarious – but mercilessly scathing – depiction of modern-day China. Forget what you’ve heard about it being the “next superpower,” the China we see in Absurd Accident is a country that’s characterized by shameless venality, rampant materialism, and gaping inequalities between the city and countryside...this film is a clear sign that Li will be “one to watch” in the years to come."

Film Threat

"a modern moral tale of the consequences of greed, wealth and a distorted masculine ideal on an unprepared rural community and is delivered with a light touch, a fast pace and a touch of naivety. It makes it an exciting wait for his next work."

“Director Li has successfully captured the angst of being left behind by China’s booming East Coast big city economic miracle with heartfelt humor and genius storytelling prowess. If his second film is anywhere near as good as this debut there’s hope for independent cinema in China after all.”

—China Film Insider

Chinese film noir meets the off kilter sensibilities of the Coen Brothers in a film that is continuously shifting gears...What an absolute cinematic joy and a hidden treasure.

Unseen Films

"perhaps one of the zaniest, outlandish and well-acted oddball romps you’ll ever see."
