Knitting (牛郎织女; Niú lán zhī nǔ) is a 2008 Chinese film directed by Yin Lichuan. Yin’s second film as director, Knitting is a romantic drama. The film was adapted by Yin from the short story “The Story of Li Ai and Haihai” by author Amei.

The film premiered at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival as part of the Directors’ Fortnight on 21 May 2008.

Though the film’s setting is never stated, Knitting was shot in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou.

Plot

Knitting was inspired in part on the story of the Cowheard and the Weaver Girl, the basis of the Chinese festival of Qi Xi, also called the Magpie Festival or the Chinese Valentine’s Day.

Director Yin Lichuan noted in her statement of intent that Knitting was meant to explore female themes from a feminine perspective. To this end the film has two female leads, one “clumsy and simple-minded,” the other “tenacious and shrewd.” [wikipedia]
