I Am Not Madame Bovary Programme 2017

by Feng Xiaogang Gala Premieres

In order to get one of the rare secondary dwellings available, Li Xuelian and her husband come up with a plan: they file for divorce. Li, however, didn’t reckon with the deceitfulness of her husband. Six months after the divorce, he unceremoniously marries another woman. A disaster for Li, who lost her fraudulent husband as well as her honour. In order to salvage her reputation and convince the corrupt authorities of her innocence, she sets of on a years-long campaign, which takes her from the countryside to the Chinese capital. I AM NOT MADAME BOVARY tells the story of a woman fighting tirelessly for her rights. China’s star director Feng Xiaogang’s circular film format opens up a completely new way of experiencing film with sublime images of breath-taking beauty.
