Shower (Xizhao)

A Chinese Yuppie returns to his father's old-fashioned neighborhood bathhouse in Beijing where he rediscovers the simple charms of work, friends and family. This surprisingly modern drama/comedy shows a side of China not seen in the usual costume epics and rural dramas. Though it follows a typical father-son reconciliation, the emphasis on emotion rather than schmaltz makes this a fine, lighthearted entertainment. 92 minutes
