Transformation of the Genre of “Phantom Sisters” and the Emergence of Class:On the Narrative Strategy of Soulmate and Its Connotation

WANG Xiao-ping;School of Chinese Language and Culture,Huaqiao University;  
Ever since the 1990s,emulating the French art cinema,Chinese directors have created a series of films which could be taken as the genre of"phantom sisters". Soulmate could be taken as the most updated version with the most apparent transformation. Generally,it is taken as a story about the bildungsroman of a pair of girls,who are bosom friends,with their emotional experience with a man. However,after a careful analysis,this seeming "woman's film"chanting women's friendship and subjectivity is in effect an anti-feminist movie filled with male-chauvinism. It actually shows the relations and interactions of three classes in contemporary Chinese society,but its ostensible middle-class perspective is hijacked by the logic of capital. Since the film does not hold a clear knowledge of Chinese class relations,it falls short of representing the "third class."
