Guan Hu’s Lao pao er (Mr. Six) will close the 72nd Festival



Lao pao er (Mr. Six) by Chinese director Guan Hu is the closing film of the 72nd Venice International Film Festival. The screening is scheduled on 12 September at 9:00 pm in the Sala Grande theater at the Palazzo del Cinema on the Lido. 

The film is the story of Mr. Six, a notorious streetwise hooligan in Beijing when he was young. After 30 years, he is diagnosed with heart disease and lives by himself in a hutong. One day, his son, Xiaobo, is taken by a group of rich kids after offending them. Enraged by the gang’s unruly customs, Mr. Six summons his old pals and plans to apply some old-fashioned tactics to get his son back. Time may have softened their edge, but the fire in their hearts still rages on. No matter how much the world changes, a man must always stay true to the person inside. 

The film stars Feng Xiaogang, considered to be the Steven Spielberg of Chinese film, singer and actor Kris Wu, one of the most cherished personalities by the Chinese youth, and Zhang Hanyu, a protagonist in the cinema of Tsui Hark and Peter Chan. 

Director Guan Hu commented on this film: “Years ago in Beijing, I remember everybody lived peacefully despite inadequate resources. Somewhere in the city, there was always a fair and popular neighborhood peacekeeper, preserving the tranquility of the hutong. He protected the residents not only from the wild teenage troublemakers, but also from any malicious outsider. He just stood there with a gentle smile on his face, garnering the warmest respect from everyone around him. But as time flies by, he now curls up in an unassuming corner of a bustling commercial street. He tries not to reminisce about the good old times, but still cannot fight the feeling of being outdated and inadequate in a modern and rapidly changing society. Knowing that he cannot return to the past, he suppresses his grief and lives on. However, when a new generation of troublemakers cross the line, he finally erupts in a fury and strikes back with all his strength, defending not only his own dignity, but the dignity of a generation long past. Mr. Six is exactly a story like this.”
