Critic Reviews for Have a Nice Day (Hao Ji Le)

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (10)

Like in any good genre yarn, there are a lot of unexpected twists and turns as characters run into each other - often quite literally and sometimes even with their vehicles - in the desperate hope of getting their hands on the money.

Liu Jian plays all this out against a detailed physical, social, and economic landscape; in Have a Nice Day money has the power to create illusions and just as easily destroy them.

You may have seen some of the worst that humanity has to offer, but you've seen it through the fresh, distinct and clarifying vision of a gifted new artist.

A mix of realism and punky attitude, with a punishing greyness to the animation that gives the whole shebang the feeling of a cosmic joke.

Top Critic

Have a Nice Day has the rough contours of an early Quentin Tarantino film with the particulars of a more arty, meditative mood piece.

January 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The stylistic quirks that define the bitterly funny Chinese animated neo-noir Have a Nice Day are thrillingly original.
