Uniform in July
Axiom Films have announced the UK Region 0 DVD release of Uniform on 28th July 2008 priced at £19.99. The directorial debut of Yinan Diao (writer of the comedy drama Shower), Uniform is a taut thriller that exposes the corrupting influence of poverty in contemporary China.
With the local factory closed and his ailing father unemployed, street tailor Xiao Jian finds himself unable to pay his family’s bills. When a laundered police-officer’s shirt remains uncollected he decides to play the role of cop, with unexpected results. Extorting payments from drivers who break minor traffic laws, attracting the attention of a young woman who works in a CD store and suddenly becoming visible to the world at large, Xiao Jian also discovers the terrible cost of leading such a precarious double life.
