'Noodle Story' truly disappoints

DIRECTOR Zhang Yimou's latest film "A Simple Noodle Story" was awarded "most disappointing film" by a film book in Beijing on Saturday.

The comedy-thriller, inspired by the Coen brothers 1984 film "Blood Simple," was also awarded "most disappointing director" and "most disappointing actor."

Cheng Qingsong, editor-in-chief of the Youth Film Handbook, said the awards were decided by Internet users and 20 independent film critics.

Director Lu Chuan's "City of Life and Death" also won two awards, including "most disappointing film" and "most disappointing director."

"The awards were initiated to sweep lousy films off the screens," said Cheng, adding the trophies (brooms) would be mailed to the winners.

The films honored by Cheng's book include Xiao Feng's drama "Qing Shui De Gu Shi," or "The Clear Water," and Guan Hu's comedy "Cow," which stars Huang Bo, best actor winner at the 46th Golden Horse Awards.
