The Great Buddha+ Premiere

Hit movie 'The Great Buddha+ will be getting its official UK premier at the 2018 Edinburgh Film Festival on June 22 & 23! 

This beautifully-made, shrewdly-amusing and award-winning Taiwanese film is a real pleasure, featuring oddball characters drawn together by the class system. Local scavenger Belly Bottom (Bamboo Chen) likes hanging out with his buddy Pickle (Cres Chuang), who works as a security guard at a company that makes giant statues of Buddha. The pair watch footage captured by the dash cam of Pickle’s boss, Kevin (Leon Dai) that draws them into his world of sex and shady business deals. Director Hsin-yao Huang provides an amusing voiceover. 

The film has already enjoyed massive success in Taiwan - it was nominated for 10 Golden Horse Awards, and won five, including Best Adapted Screenplay.
