Old Lin (ZHOU Lidong) owns a small-sized company that supplies machinery and facilities. He lives a decent middle-class life, with a wife on an overseas assignment, a son going to take the College Entrance Exam before studying abroad, a group of friends who are just as well-educated as he is, and a lover to whom he never speaks the word “love”. When he struggles to collect payment from a key client, he suddenly finds his life adrift like a falling leaf in the wind.
The Fall is ZHOU Lidong’s debut feature, adapted from his and his friends’ real-life experiences as businessmen.
Born in Shandong Province in 1964, ZHOU Lidong is now a Beijing-based film director and businessman. Before breaking into the film industry, he has worked in coal mines, worked as a translator, and spent more than a decade building his own business.
