“A stunning, provocative work… It’s like no other
Chinese film you’ve ever seen.”
— Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily
A seedy small city in Southern China is the site of this
politically provocative, entertainingly cynical animated
neo-noir. The pulp-fictional plot is set in motion
when a low-ranking mob bagman swipes a satchel
containing a million yuan in order to finance plastic
surgery for his girlfriend. An assortment of hit men,
opportunists, double-crossers, and smalltime dreamers
follow the bag’s erratic, corpse-strewn trail across
a sharply etched urban wasteland of cracked walls,
peeling posters, and flickering neon. In Mandarin with
English subtitles. DCP digital.
