The film "Ma Wen's Battle" has recently released its trailer and stills, revealing four heroes and heroines caught in a complicated emotional tangle and unable to get out, Mtime.com reports.
This film touches on the complex and twisted relationships between husband and wife, ex-couple and even parents and children. Strange and awkward situations fueled by these difficult relationships make up this urban family dark comedy.
"Ma Wen's Battle," adapted from Chinese writer Ye Zhaoyan's best-selling same-named novel, depicts the hero, Ma Wen and his wife Yang Xin, who can not reach an agreement on the distribution of their common property--the house-- after they get divorced. As a result, Ma has to share a small room with his ex-wife, their young son, and his ex-wife's new lover. The four protagonists, struggling with the evolution of romantic relationships, have some clear-headed moments among their general confusion. The hero, Ma Wen, who is useless and ordinary, wanted to live a quiet life but instead has to endure the agonizing love battle caused by his housing problem.
Previously, the TV series of "Ma Wen's Battle" starring Lin Yongjian and Song Dandan garnered high ratings and a large fan base. Compared to the TV series, the film version is more authentic in terms of the content and spirit. The cast members include Cheng Taishen, recently confirmed to be participating in Zhang Yimou's latest film "Shan Zha Shu Zhi Lian", and also Wang Ji, Jiang Hongbo and Li Mengnan. It is directed by the seventh generation film director Chang Zheng.
