China has submitted “The Nightingale” (“Le promeneur d’oiseau”), as the surprise candidate for best foreign-language film at the 2015 Oscars. This heartwarming movie was presented Singapore in avant-premiere last year as opening film of the 3rd Rendezvous with French Cinema , last December in presence of its French director, Philippe Muyl and the main casts.


The movie is a Chinese take on Muyl’s 2002 film “The butterfly” (“Le Papillon”) about the bond building journey between an old man (Li Baotian) and his granddaughter Renxing (Yang Xinyi) to rural, southwestern China. Xiaoran and Qin Hao also star as Renxing’s parents.
