26 May - 1 June

Details

Winner of Best Film at the 2017 Asian Film Awards, I Am Not Madame Bovary stars prolific actress Fan Bingbing as Li Xuelian, a woman on an inexorable quest for justice. Li and her husband have hatched a plan to get a ‘fake’ divorce to secure an apartment, however her husband then moves in with another woman. In a clever comic commentary on Chinese bureaucracy, Li then proceeds to spend a decade systematically petitioning every state official she can find in an effort to exact retribution. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
