"A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop" is a remake of the 1985 directorial debut of Joel and Ethan Coen, "Blood Simple". Zhang Yimou ("Red Sorghum", "To Live," "Hero", "House of Flying Daggers"), one of the most eminent directors of the "Fifth Generation", transposes the Coen Brother's celebrated mix of dark humor and riveting suspense to a noodle shop in western China. This black comedy thriller is an exposé of how intense desires can consume humanity, and the irony that life never submits to our calculation.
