Two scoundrels wander through the strange city, without a family or a home, making a living and fantasizing about a stroke of luck.
A Shanghai Bride has a fable tone, a very elegant, distant comic element, and the full certainty that cinema is an adventure with no chance of an inventory. It’s a plunge in which images should never ever show everything, instead they must be able to suggest it, and also throw themselves to the world and reach as far as they can, exhibiting a determination and skill that may not be there. After the shocking beginning of the film, where hundreds of stories and plots appear to be boiling up and connected by the invisible thread that weaves the mystery of a huge city, the director also finds its protagonists, a couple of indolent hustlers with the illusions of the desperate ones: Andrizzi's “Asian film” is also the story of an impossible dream in which the dead make the living walk.
