MOVIE: Shun Li and the Poet (Three Rivers Film Festival)

Shun Li and the Poet
Andrea Segre | Italy | 2011 | 100min


Winner of “Best First Feature” in the London Film Fest, this tender story begins with Shun Li working in a textile factory near Rome. She's slowly paying off the broker who brought her from China to Italy, while trying to save money to bring her young son over. Transferred to work as a bartender in a pub that's a hangout for local fishermen, one day she meets Bepi, a handsome old Slav immigrant nicknamed "The Poet." A delicate friendship grows between them, but gossip soon threatens their innocent relationship. Variety calls the film “exquisite” and “rapturous.”
