China pics set for U.K. tour

Ten films to be shown

BEIJING — Blighty auds are being given a chance to sample some of the finer Chinese movies available as China Now, a festival of Chinese culture, launches a nationwide tour of pics.

The tour, which runs until the end of September, goes beyond the usual Chinese fare seen in the West, such as “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and “House of Flying Daggers,” to show the kind of pics that mainstream Chinese auds enjoy and that give a better feel for the country and the changes it has undergone in the last generation.

Tour will visit 17 theaters and show 10 films, including local bows for “Luxury Car,” “Crazy Stone” and “Delamu” (Angel of Peace).

Tour also includes “Sunflower,” “A Battle of Wits,” “The Birthday,” “Isabella,” “Still Life,” “Farewell My Concubine” and “Horse Thief.”
