This must be one of the best little known movies out there. You don't know if you should laugh or cry about this one, but is one of the best and fresh plots out there.

A fun but emotional episodic dramedy about a man on a journey to fulfill a promise to take his deceased friend back to his hometown. Although both heartwarming and sad, this enjoyable story shows the power of friendship and trust.

Black comedy, it is. Nonetheless, enjoy the ride very much. Quirky and revealing. Ah, to have a friend like the protagonist, what could I ask for in life? I like the way the film facets of China's evolving economic and social landscape, especially the conmen. haha... this is from someone who backpacked to China before. :P Must watch, especially when spirits are down. Uplifting!

The great comedian Zhao Benshan returns to star in this road movie, about a migrant worker who carries his dead friend home as a token to their friendship. Along the way, he encounters all kinds of folks, some warm, some quirky, some just out to get him. In one scene, Zhao is down on his luck and desperate, and resorts to selling his blood to a shady backstreet dealer. This is reminiscent of real social problems in China today - in the 90's, many peasants in Hunan province contracted AIDS by selling their blood. Another scene, where Zhao plays a ventriloquist in a skit to entertain fellow residents at a homeless shelter, was incredibly moving.
