A Zhang Yimou Film.
When a chinese shopkeeper plots to execute his unfaithful wife and her lover, the lover has a lethal plan of his own in this gripping retelling of the coen brothers' classic blood simple.

"...alternately comic and terrifying...  Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"...a major visual treat...  Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer

Editor's Note
Love, betrayal, and murder take root in the deserts of China in this comedy drama from filmmaker Zhang Yimou. Wang (Ni Dahong) is an ill-tempered tyrant who runs a noodle shop not far from the Great Wall. Wang treats his employees like dirt and isn't much friendlier to his long-suffering wife (Yan Ni), who soothes her nerves by having an affair with Li (Xiao Shenyang), one of Wang's cooks. The wife would like to take Wang out of the picture, and one day she gives Li a gun, suggesting that he kill Wang so they can live in peace. A crooked cop named Zhang learns about the plot and tells Wang about the lovers, offering to kill them for a price. The next day, Zhang returns with evidence that Wang's wife and his cook have been shot, but shoots Wang before he can pay him. Zhang is about to empty out Wang's safe when he discovers he wasn't the only one with a plan to double-cross the despised noodle baron. Inspired by Joel and Ethan Coen's BLOOD SIMPLE, SAN QIANG PAI AN JING QI (aka A WOMAN, A GUN AND A NOODLE SHOP) was an official selection at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival.

Expert Review A Woman, A Gun And A Noodle Shop - DVD Review
By: Luigi Bastardo Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 2/27/2011 6:00 PM
Chinese filmmakers have something of an odd legacy when it comes to paying their respects to the many millions of movies their fellow artists have made the world over. If you think its impossible to mash two vastly different, more-popular international movies such as Three Men And A Baby and Taxi Driver together, then you probably haven’t seen very many Hong Kong movies....read the full review

The Arizona Republic 8 of 10
It takes real chutzpah to challenge the Coen brothers when it comes to stylization in movies, but Chinese director Zhang Yimou has done just that...Zhang has taken almost everything possible from "Blood Simple" and transferred it, lock stock and three-barreled gun, from contemporary Texas to 19th century China, and upped the ante on style to the point that the style has become the point.. - Richard Nilsen
