zhang_yimou The Chinese remake of Blood Simple debuted that the Berlin Film Festival.  Zhang Yimou replaced small town America with the Gansu province of northwestern China.  Instead of a bar owner it’s a noodle shop owner.  Sounds pretty amusing.  Yimou first saw Blood Simple at the Cannes film festival but without subtitles he couldn’t follow what was going on.  It wasn’t until years later that he saw it again with Mandarin and decided he had to remake it. 

Joel and Ethan saw the film and were so amused that they sent Yimou an email explaining “They were amazed their film had been turned into a noodle story.”
