The Breaking Ice
In cold wintry Yanji in northern China, visiting urbanite Haofeng feels lost and adrift. By chance, he meets Nana, a tour guide who instantly fascinates him. She introduces him to Xiao, a personable but frustrated restaurant worker. The trio bond quickly over a drunken weekend, fueled by a bit of lust. Confronting their individual traumas, their frozen desires slowly thaw as they seek to liberate themselves from an icy world. Director by Anthony Chen (Ilo Ilo and Wet Season), the nominee of Un Certain Regard Section at the Cannes Film Festival and Singapore's entry for the Best International Feature Film of Academy Awards is also a mirror of the Chinese lost and frustrated youth generation.
