WINTER VACATION (Li Hongqi, 2010)


Deadpan absurdism of the Andersson-Suleiman variety pushed to a mordant, oppressive limit. It seems to be intended as some sort of satire of small-town ennui in Northern China. But you get the point pretty early on, and the joke - which consists of suppressing face expressions and stretching out the nonsensical dialogues endlessly - wears out quickly.
