I Love You

  • China / 2002 / 94 Min
  • Original Title : Wo Ai Ni
  • Director : Zhang Yuan


Inspired by a novel by famous Beijing writer Wang Shuo, Zhang Yuan explores the claustrophobic relationship between a young nurse with a troubled family history and the young man she drives into a hasty marriage. After the first few weeks of honeymoon, their obsession with each other gradually turns to irritation, jealousy and violent fights. As the couple sink further into their folie à deux, Zhang films them mostly in close-up, as if to extract the fragile truth hidden under the skin of the protagonists. The actors improvise, reaching moments of naked truth shot in a pseudo-documentary style.
