A Woman a Gun and a Noodle Shop reworks Blood Simple

Based on the 1985 film “Blood Simple” by the Coen Brothers, the historical thriller changes the Coens’ backdrop from a small Texas town to a small Chinese town in the Gansu province, but keep the plot intact: a jealous husband hires a professional to kill his adulterous wife and her lover. Naturally, things go awry and get bloody fast.

Zhang’s version stars Sun Honglei and Ni Dahong, and also features a duo of heavily caricatured fools for comic relief. Having made its debut at the Berlin Film Festival, the Sony Pictures Classic release opens in limited release in the U.S. on Sept. 3.
