Year of the Fish
Wide-eyed Ye Xian (An Nguyen), a servant at a massage parlor, falls for a musician ( ABC "Lost's" Ken Leung) and transcends her oppressive reality with a magic koi in director David Kaplan's digitally painted retelling of the Cinderella story. Set in New York City's Chinatown, the film -- a ninth-century Chinese variant of the fairy tale -- also stars Tsai Chin as cruel madam Mrs. Su and Randall Duk Kim as the fortune teller who comes to Ye Xian's rescue. Filmed using a digital animation technique called rotoscoping, made famous from Richard Linklater's films "Waking Life" and "A Scanner Darkly".
