Young Couples

Zheng's flim comprises six episodes, each featuring a young married couple and aiming to sketch a particular economic, moral or psychological problem; the cumbersome link is that they all live in the same high-rise in the Beijing suburbs. This was actually made to launch the careers of twelve new graduates from the Beijing Film Academy's acting classes, and it never manages to look anything but contrived. The script is weak, the performances are flat, and it all feels like TV drama.
