  After six months at sea, the master returns Lin (Xuei Wang) back to Chongqing, where he once lived. There, some time ago, his son, Bo Lin (Yi Zi) was shot dead by a policeman after he attacked several people with a knife and had barricaded with a hostage in a department store. Shocked to beat Lin for clues about the reasons for the incomprehensible fact of his son, but he comes up against a wall of silence, which he has ascribed to itself. After all, he was the one the family once abandoned is no wonder that his ex-wife reacted angrily to the investigation of the captain and Lino Bos best friend is not ready to Li to help his search. Slowly the fog lifts, as in Lin experience is that his son was abandoned before the accident by his girlfriend Xiao Wen. And finally, he must recognize that he has loaded himself a proper share of blame for the drama itself. After this year, many American films are absent from the Croisette, it is mostly art-house films with serious themes, which determine the first appearance of competition. Chongqing Blues fits as well into the program. With much deliberation and calm, bordering at times almost to long-windedness, designs Xiaoshuai Wang a fascinating and dark panorama of China’s third largest city, things still seem to run a little slower. Only rarely realized the audience that the classic story of a family of broken plays actually in our day. The slow flow of the narrative requires quite a lot from the viewer, and more than one thinks, one that the story is now coming to an end before the director again and a new figure to insert a new turn in his film. Still, who hold out until the end will be rewarded with a remarkable cinematic art-work, the chances of a German Releasedate should indeed be quite small, but which could well set the direction for this year’s competition on the Croisette.
