Recommend this film

In a street in the north of Shanghai we find a small restaurant, dirty and run-down, but with lots of personality, where Chinese noodles (miantiao) are made 24 hours a day. It’s run by an ethnic Hui Muslim family from the region of Qinghai, in Northwest China. ‘Abierto 24 horas’ presents a chronological account of the 24 hours of life in this establishment. A common thread is the noodles. We see the entire process of making a plate of them: from making the dough to the surprising and captivating act of stretching the noodles to the preparation of the accompanying meat with vegetables, for example. The documentary penetrates into the lives of this family with their restaurant as a backdrop. From the place where they all work and their interactions, the viewer learns about their customs, their traditions, and their mentality. The friendship between the filmmaker and the subjects of the film give the documentary a very intimate feeling, with situations at times revealing a touching involvement between them.
