Diver wants to drown his wife to get insurance money!

Not in real life in this case, but in a movie.

Thanks to the guy who recommended me this Chinese movie!

100% sure that I would have never seen this one without a recommendation as Chinese movies mostly are never shown outside of China.

And here is the video:

Watch the video before you continue!

I bet you are confused right now! 😉

Well, I was too… until the guy who recommended this one explained it to me.

I would love to watch the whole movie, but since I don’t speak Chinese, that doesn’t make sense.

I hardly doubt this movie will ever get subtitles or a dub.

The overall story is seemingly that he wants to drown his wife and then get the insurance money, claiming she died by accident.

But he then gets stuck in a time loop(!) and in one version he kills her again (version 2 in the video), perhaps in others too but it isn’t shown on screen.

In the end, he gets out of the time loop (as he doesn’t kill her in version 3 in the video)… and there seems to be a happy ending.

Now to the different versions:

Version 3 is interesting as the audience thinks he will turn off her air once again, but actually, he doesn’t do it this time.

Version 1 is shot quite weirdly as big parts of the action aren’t shown properly. It’s cut too fast and she drowns nearly instantly.

Version 2 is the most interesting and best for me. It’s shown how he turns off her air, and the struggle is a little longer. She fights back a little more, but still drowns very fast. Certainly, there is a lot of room for improvement, but it’s a good and thrilling scene for me.

The title is seemingly:

My original info was:

深潜

aka “Diving day”

aka “Deep diving day”

(according to the guy who recommended the movie to me)

What do you think of those scenes?

Feel welcome to leave a comment!

  1. Hi,

    Personally I avoid all chinese movies, not because of unavailability, but they are too “correct”, severely deficient of creativity and senses of aesthetic.

    • Well, I basically don’t know many movies from China, since I won’t watch a movie if I don’t understand the language.
      And these movies mostly don’t get dubs or subtitles.
      Plus they are often influenced by the political party.
      But if there are interesting scenes like in this case… it gets interesting for me.
      You don’t need so much language for scuba scenes 😉
