Shun Li And The Poet Review

Image for Shun Li And The Poet

Chinese textile worker Shun Li (Tao) finds her plans to bring her son to Italy in disarray when she's transferred to a small island town. There, though, she meets taciturn fisherman Bepi (Serbedzija) and a tentative bond emerges.


Lonely romantics form a platonic bond over poetry in this charming drama exquisitely shot in the port of Chioggia by Luca Bigazzi. Zhao Tao and Rade Serbedzija impress as the Chinese barmaid and Slavic fisherman overcoming prejudice.

A lyrical romance of two lonely souls connecting.
