Freed from time and any historical or political perspective, we are confronted with the Otherness of Chinese culture. We see in this film the opposite of the picturesque – a slice of quotidian life that may be banal, but fascinates us all the same. Is this a kind of exoticism? Yes, if exoticism means to recognize Otherness, to realize that you are the others’ Other and so you are every bit as ‘exotic’ as they are.
