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

If all the world's a stage, then resorting to just that when faced with a shoestring movie budget may be just the cure, in this delightfully heartfelt yet solemn and brutal New Market Economy China road movie to nowhere.

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.
