BEIJING, March 16 (Xinhua) -- "Police Diary," whose star won the best actor award at last year's Tokyo International Film Festival, is set to hit Chinese mainland cinemas on March 21.

The film, also known as "To Live and Die in Ordos," is based on the true story of a police officer dedicated to bringing criminals to justice in Ordos, a northern Chinese city.

Critics lauding the film have said it chronicles the spiritual development of a policeman as well as the lives of both upper and lower classes in Chinese society.

Chinese actor Wang Jingchun, now in his 40s, plays the protagonist. Wang won the Best Actor Award for the role at the 2013 Tokyo International Film Festival. He is domestically renowned for his depictions of law enforcement officers in both film and TV.

Director Ning Ying is among China's "Sixth Generation" filmmakers, alongside notables such as Zhang Yuan and Wang Xiaoshuai. She worked as an assistant director of the 1987 epic "The Last Emperor" directed by Italian icon Bernardo Bertolucci.
