Na­tion­wide re­lease set for Wuhan-di­alect com­edy

Changjiang Weekly - - CULTURE -

The Rented Wife, star­ring lo­cal co­me­dian Ax­ing and di­rected by Hubei di­rec­tor Qi Zhui­hang, is set for a na­tion­wide re­lease in cin­e­mas on March 31.

The film tells the story of a sin­gle young man named Erma, who has achieved some mod­est suc­cess over the past 10 years far away from his home­town. He de­cides to go back to his home­town with a rented wife. The twisted turn thrusts in when he gets caught up with a few thieves.

Apart from the Wuhan di­alect, over 20 di­alects na­tion­wide have been cap­tured in the film. The di­rec­tor says it is a film ded­i­cated to all un­mar­ried young peo­ple mak­ing a liv­ing far away from their home­towns. The frank­ness and hu­mor em­bod­ied by the di­alects is what makes it unique.
