Dir. Yu Yang (as Jiaozi). 2019, 110 mins. DCP. In Chinese (Mandarin) with English subtitles. A stunning, imaginative CGI blockbuster, Ne Zha brings spectacular martial-arts fighting action to a popular folk myth. A young boy born with unique powers and destined by prophecy to bring destruction to the world, Nezha must choose between good and evil in order to become the hero. Manipulated by the spirit world, over-protected by his parents, and feared by the villagers, he longs for an opportunity to be truly alive. Ne Zha was China’s most successful animated film and the second most popular film in any genre, ever, breaking box office records. View trailer.
“Residing just beneath all the visual razzle dazzle is a stirring message of empowerment. ‘If fate isn’t fair, fight it till the end,’ rasps the pint-sized Nezha, whose universal rallying cry to the oppressed reverberates far beyond the boundaries of his 11th century village.”—Los Angeles Times
