Synopsis

In their third consecutive film together, following LOST IN BEIJING (2007) and BUDDHA MOUNTAIN (HIFF, 2011), director Li Yu and megastar Fan Bingbing, an actress blessed with transcendent physical beauty, have created a radical head-scratching tale of damaged souls disguised as a baffling genre experiment and a study in self-involvement.

Song Qi (Fan Bingbing) seems to have every reason to be fulfilled: happily employed at a plastic surgery clinic, she is in a stable long-term relationship with her good-looking colleague Liu Dong (William Feng Shaofeng), and is best friends with rich bored housewife Xiaoxi (Huo Siyan). Things go off the rails when she begins to suspect her seemingly loving boyfriend is actually cheating on her—with her best friend of all people. The two women have a violent confrontation over the affair. Enraged, Song Qi commits the irreparable.

But things are not quite what they seem. Song Qi, as she loses her grip on her own sanity, enters the warped world of the titular “double exposure”, where sharp dislocations of reality shatter the barrier between madness and reason. She embarks on a semi-mystical journey (or maybe just a psychotic break) into the unknowable: her past and the darkest depths of her own subterranean mind.

《二次曝光》由李玉执导,是范冰冰与她合作的第三部作品,在14个城市取景,航拍、特技,广西溶洞、新疆胡杨林、天山雪峰、秦皇岛大海等美景都一一呈现。宋其(范冰冰 饰)是一家整容公司的形象咨询师,无意间发现同属一家公司的整容医生兼男朋友刘东(冯绍峰 饰)和闺蜜周小西(霍思燕 饰)的私情。本想找小西理论,却在盛怒之下错杀了小西,于是开始一段逃亡之旅。

两段偷情、三次弑杀、四幕风月,谜案、迷情、迷幻,三个世界与两段时空会带来怎样的故事呢?

李玉的电影总逃不脱伤害、女性心理。李玉说,“中国是一个很压抑的民族,尤其是这个时代,大家追求物质的时候很开放,可以各种手段,但非常忽略自己的心灵。当外部遭受重大刺激的时候,没有信仰的支撑,精神和心理就会有很多偏差甚至崩溃。”
