Black Coal, Thin Ice – UK Trailer

Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival last year, Black Coal Thin Ice, by acclaimed Chinese director Diao Yinan, follows Ex-cop Zhang Zili – seriously wounded five years earlier while working on a gruesome coal-plant murder case and forced to retire from the police force due to his injuries. Five years later, the killer strikes again, and Zhang, now a factory security guard, is determined to redeem himself and solve the case on his own. Leading his own investigation, he soon discovers that all of the victims seem to be related to a mysterious woman named Wu Zhizhen who works in a dry cleaning shop. As he attempts to find out her dark secrets, Zhang finds himself falling for her but, in uncovering the truth, ends up in great danger.
