HYBRID A drama about a messed-up marriage – or a meta-film about filmic truth and the staging of a private life? Father, mother, baby. A car. Unspoken accusations and old resentments. Wang Xiaozhen portrays a road trip to the edge of a marital abyss. That the father is a film-maker who records every stage of the disastrous excursion is not destined to deescalate the situation. Later, the couple take on roles: he the unfaithful husband, she the lover. The audience begins to wonder: are we watching an oppressive chamber play or are we accomplices in some exhibitionistic documentary?
