Wu Hongyan, woman executioner in her thirties, works at the court in the province of Shaanxi in China, where she carries out executions on women.

Wu Hongyan travels every weekend to a town to join parties organized by a marriage bureau. The result of her dating is mediocre, until she meets the mysterious Li Jun. She could not have suspected that Li Jun’s wife was the last woman she has executed.

Night Train is writer-director Diao Yi’nan’s second feature film. Like his previous film, Uniform, Night Train takes place in Diao’s home province of Shaanxi and was shot in and around Baoji.

Night Train premiered in the 2007 Cannes Film Festival as part of the Un Certain Regard competition and was one of only two Asian films (the other being Li Yang’s Blind Mountain) in competition for an award. The film was produced by Diao’s Beijing-based Ho-Hi Pictures with funding from French (Fonds Sud Cinema) and American (DViant Films) companies. [wikipedia]
