Yellow Cat(HKAFF 2021)
On the Kazakh steppes, Kermek — possibly the biggest fan of yellow Hawaiian shirts and Jean-Pierre Melville's Le Samourai in Kazakhstan — is recruited to commit crimes for a police officer and his gang. After stealing money from a gangster, Kermek escapes with prostitute Eva in tow, and hopes to fulfill his dream of opening a movie theatre in the middle of nowhere, even as gangsters relentlessly chase them. Made with the carefully crafted visual instinct of Wes Anderson and the dark comedic timing of the Coen Brothers, Adilkhan Yerzhanov’s surreal comedy is delightfully absurd and even surprisingly romantic.
