From the celebrated Lou Ye, one of contemporary Chinese cinema’s greatest directorial talents, comes the Best Film and Best Screenplay Asian Film Award-winning Mystery (2012), an intricate and unpredictable whodunit. To celebrate the home entertainment release of Mystery this Monday (11 November), we’ve kindly been provided with THREE DVD copies of Ye’s Un Certain Regard contender to give away to our Asian cinema-adoring readership, once again courtesy of our friends over at UK arthouse distributors Artificial Eye.

However, a few hours later her world will truly be turned upside down when the young woman dies beneath the wheels of a car and the police refuse to believe her death was an accident. On the film, The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw states “Distinctive and confident, Lou Ye’s intriguing noir-melodrama lives up to its name.”
