Tofuman

(豆福傳)

 
Synopsis:

Directed by Joey Zou, the Chinese 3D CGI feature Tofumanis based on a Chinese legend concerning the origin of Tofu or bean curd, and follows a group of beans that come to life and start practicing magic arts to gain immortality. Guo Lei, the visual director of the home-grown blockbuster Monkey King: Hero is Back and Monster Hunt, is also the visual director for Tofuman.

The Huainan seignior Liu An worships immortality. He collects beans of all minds to make elixir. However, during his attempt, the elixir is not made but the beans have come to life and make their own world-the bean world. The beans follow Liu An as their mentor and practice the magic arts for immortality. But after Liu An has ascended, they eventually give up on the practice and make law banning it. But one bean-Dou Fu, continues the practice despite everyone else’s smearing and objections. Dou Fu is immersed in his pursuit but accidentally got into trouble. He is institutionalized as psycho and tortured. But it turns out to be blessing in disguise because one of the crazy inmates he meets there is Looney Bean-said to be a god evicted to Earth from Heaven. Dou Fu continues to practice magic under his teaching. After all the ordeals and trials, Dou Fu never gives up and finally “ascends” to heaven but only to find everything is conspiracy and a disaster is looming over the entire bean race.
