Storyline


The 2019 China Film Festival opened on Thursday in Port Louis, capital of Mauritius, in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the People's Republic of China and to boost the bilateral ties between China and Mauritius.

The event is co-organized by the China Cultural Center in Mauritius and the Mauritius Film Development Bureau.

A total of six Chinese films were specially selected by the organizers and are screened with no admission fees in the hope of attracting the widest possible audience.

Chinese sci-fi blockbuster "The Wandering Earth" was screened as the opening film. The film earned over 4.6 billion yuan (about 649 million U.S. dollars), which makes it the third most successful film in the Chinese box office.

The film tells a story of an epic project to move the earth and its 3.5 billion residents to a remote star system in the near future because the sun is dying and is about to swallow up the earth.

"So firstly I would like to say it's an absolutely amazing movie. My impression was I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. I was sitting on the edge. It was so impactful, it was so thrilling. I absolutely loved it," said Vecchia Juda, a festival goer.

"Watching 'The Wandering Earth' is a wonderful experience for me in the sense that I could see the global scientific cooperation that will save humanity, and that was so wonderful. And there is also a dosage of humanity and wonderful feelings in the film," said Jordan who also watched the film.
