The long road home

The best comedies are often tragedies at heart. They affirm the sad truth that there is no such thing as a perfect life - even in the movies.

Tragic comedy

Turning A REAL-LIFE tragedy into a comedy is no easy feat. But mainland director Zhang Yang has done just that in his new film Getting Home.

It is a hilarious but heartbreaking film about a poor migrant worker in China who tries to smuggle the body of his friend and co-worker - who dies unexpectedly - home for burial.
