Synopsis

A young man tries to get away from his family’s overwhelming power, but when he accidentally kills a local thug, his fate will be intricately linked to his father’s. A woman, who for years has been victim of domestic violence, finds comfort in the arms of her ex-lover. The news of the death of her husband arrives as she was planning his murder. An honest village chief plans to retire but an exceptional event related to his son will pull him into the abyss.

村长的儿子想逃离老爸的控制,却失手杀了人,好不容易逃亡,等他再回头,却发现杀人案早告一段落,更意外的是,死亡人人怕,这具尸体却众人抢,还辗转过了好几手,就此转出一个村子荒谬故事来。谁杀谁,又是谁下的手?人人心头都有一个想抹去的人,谁都有该死的理由,但命运从不是自己能掌控。错中错,机巧叙事,乱中有序,看尸体多活跃,谎言、圈套、与逃亡如何组成机运之歌,原来所有巧合都是宿命,偶然就是必然。导演忻钰坤锋芒毕露之作,熟练操作多叙事结构,三段乍看无关之叙事串连出波澜阵阵之人性风暴,情理之中,意料之外,剥洋葱似层层露出冲击性真相来,彷佛把柯恩兄弟、昆丁塔伦提诺放进中国农村里,复杂又精巧,人性在此迷路,故事由此狂飙。影片在中国上映时改名为《心迷宫》。
