Subtitles

Master Chen has never seen his wife, his daughter, or the skyscrapers that surround his home in the middle of Shanghai. He is blind, and makes a living giving traditional Chinese massage to busy businessmen. Chen lost his eyesight in a fight during his rootless youth, and has not seen the colossal changes that China has gone through during the past twenty years. But he can feel them on the bodies of his clients, where his fingers can literally read the passing of time. Zero Lin and Ada Bligaard Søby have made a sensual and attentive film about a man who can remember the colour red, but who has forgotten what pink looks like. But 'My World' is also a film about the world surrounding him, where the small and densely populated streets lie right next to the modern skylines, which are shooting up like mushrooms.
