Dada’s Dance by Zhang Yuan Movie Trailer

Dada’s Dance (达达; Dádá) is a 2008 Chinese film directed by the leading sixth generation director, Zhang Yuan. Unlike earlier films in his career, Dada’s Dance successfully negotiated the Chinese censorship apparatus and emerged unedited and unchanged from Zhang’s original cut. The film stars Li Xinyun as the titular Dada and was produced by Zhang’s own Zhang Yuan Cultural Studios and the Beijing Century Good-Tidings Cultural Development Company.

The film screened once in Beijing, China during the Beijing Screenings event on 25 September 2008 and had its international premiere at the Pusan International Film Festival on 3 October 2008.

Plot

‘When she returns to the city, things take a turn for the worse as Dada puts into motion a sequence ofDada’ (Li Xinyun) is a young woman living in an unnamed central China city (filming took place in Wuhan[3]) with her divorced mother (Gai Ke) and her mother’s leering boyfriend (Wu Lanhui). Her neighbor, Zhao Ye (Li Xiaofeng) spies on her through her open window each morning as she dances to salsa music and gets ready for the day. Dada, knowing of his crush, teases him mercilessly.

Dada spends much of her time avoiding the crude passes made by her mother’s boyfriend. During one of these episodes, an argument occurs and her mother’s boyfriend falsely claims that Dada was adopted. Armed with this information, she drags Zhao Ye and heads south to a small village where she meets a woman who could be her birth mother. [wikipedia]
