‘Zhang Yimou's tale of the power of cinema has a gorgeous eye, a droll sense of humor and a big, full celluloid heart.’


After escaping from a prison labour camp, a fugitive sets off to catch a screening of a newsreel film that contains a glimpse of his beloved daughter. Along the way he teams up with a scruffy orphan who has her own reasons for wanting the film. The latest touching drama from giant of international cinema, Zhang Yimou (House of Flying Daggers, Ju Dou), celebrates the may powers and uses of cinema.

With elements of classic silent movie slapstick and set against a striking Gobi Desert landscape, One Second is thoughtful entertainment from a major film artist.
