Written and Directed by Philippe Cherbonnier (1998)

Journey of enlightenment to hell and back, where commedia meets Beijing Opera.

On the morning of the 9th moon, Teng Mu, a young scholar, sets off to climb Mount Omei but his journey takes him much further than the lonely pine on the summit.

A drunken shadow spirit leads him on an enlightening trip to the Taoist underworld, where a terrible secret lies buried in the tortured soul of his wife.

Commedia meets Beijing Opera style in a strong piece of stylised storytelling.
