For no apparent reason, a mute young woman assaults a youth who delivers water on his bicycle, injuring him and ruining his bike. Surprisingly, she asks him to feed her fish while she is in custody. Her tiny apartment, he discovers, is a shrine to his favorite escape, the movies. He finds her diary - a screenplay of her life built around scenes from favorite films - and it sets off his imagination. Maybe they have more in common than a love of the movies. Edit Translation

This is reminiscent of the European classic Cinema Paradiso where cinema transforms the lonely existence of people living under harsh conditions. Here in rural China villagers unite to watch evening outdoor movies. Children's dreams are stimulated by the stories shown on screen. In this case, two young children escape the world through the imagination brought by film. Electric Shadows is a captivating watch!
