Simply brilliant film-making for less than $5000. For anybody the least bit curious about China today and who has a taste for sophisticated comedy, this is not to be missed.

There's little insight to be found in Ying's presentation of even seemingly helpful citizens as fundamentally cruel and animalistic.
