Globe on Screen: Titus Andronicus*

 

May 4th, 2015 at 7:00pm

 

NTitus Andronicus Returning to Rome from a war against the Goths, the general Titus Andronicus brings with him the queen Tamora and her three sons as prisoners of war. Titus� sacrifice of Tamora�s eldest son to appease the ghosts of his dead sons and his decision to refuse to accept the title of emperor initiates a terrible cycle of mutilation, rape and murder. And all the while, at the centre of the nightmare, there moves the villainous, self-delighting Aaron. Grotesquely violent and daringly experimental, Titus Andronicus was the smash hit of Shakespeare�s early career, and is written with a ghoulish energy he was never to repeat elsewhere.

However, following the assassination of two members of his unit, An has no way of transmitting the unbelievable information to his superiors. Nakanishi subsequently receives confirmation of the attack in a coded weather broadcast on Japanese radio ("East wind, rain") and also hears that a roll of film containing major information is secretly on its way to him from a fellow high-placed sympathiser, Ozaki Hidemi (Dong Cheng), in Tokyo. On the night of 7 December, Nakanishi is arrested, the roll of film goes missing, and the Japanese declare war on the U.S., next day taking over the whole city. In the subsequent weeks, a battle of wits ensues between Japanese intelligence head Fujiki Yoshio (Takemoto Takayuki) and An and his colleague Hao Birou (Li Xiaoran), a teacher at a refugee hostel, as both sides try to trace the roll of film. An also comes under pressure from his new liaison officer, Fang Qianmo (Yu Rongguang), and from his girlfriend, nighclub singer Huanyan (Fan Bingbing), to leave Shanghai, but he refuses until his job is done.

Gimme Kudos*

 

Thursday, February 5, 2015 7:30pm

 

A superstar reporter at a Nanjing newspaper, Gu is a man who seems to have it all: a respectable job, a sizeable modern apartment, and a pretty police officer girlfriend. Little does he realize his whole universe is about to fall apart after his meeting with Yang, a country bumpkin who demands public kudos in his newspaper for saving a university coed from rape. Brushing him off at first, Gu finally decides to investigate the case thanks to Yang?s relentless hounding. He finds out Yang?s old dying father was a national labor model, with diplomas galore extolling his exemplary work all over the walls in his decrepit hut. Never "recognized" for anything, Yang determines to show his father his own public kudos in a last desperate attempt to keep death at bay. But everything becomes more complicated after Gu befriends the alleged rape victim, Ouyang Hua, a blossoming young woman as beautiful as she is mysterious. She originally refuses to corroborate Yang?s story. Only when the truth is about to be revealed does she try to thwart its publication by appealing to Gu?s conscience, claiming that her whole future and reputation will be at stake. At the horns of a dilemma between objective truth and subjective reality, Gu is forced to delve into his own psyche only to find his value system increasingly unreliable, the raison d?etre behind his profession on the verge of collapse, and his relationship with his long-time girlfriend all the more precarious.
