Like the director's lens itself, they are the repository of this story--all the way through the startlingly abbreviated Passion sequence (abbreviated because she misses much of it, which allows the film, wisely, not to have to treat a sequence that has been filmically done to death, but instead to keep its focus on her) all the way to a (characteristically unsensational) resurrection appearance outside the empty tomb.
Anyway, to make it slightly watchable they've shoved them all on a Hampshire farm so that the obligatory Arg (see tonight on Channel 4's The Jump) can filmically chase turkeys around and not-so-slim pin-up Jennifer Ellison can act like she's a milk maid.

The construction of spatial discourses and social identity in 1990s Chinese urban cinema has been thoroughly explored in Linda Chiu-Han Lai's "Whither the Walker Goes: Spatial Practices and Negative Poetics in 1990s Chinese Urban Cinema."
