Press Quotes

'Chinese film noir meets the off kilter sensibilities of the Coen Brothers in a film that is continuously shifting gears...What an absolute cinematic joy and a hidden treasure.'

     —Steve Kopian, Unseen Films

'a great, dark comedy and a refreshing cinematic surprise that laughs at the real-life challenges faced by modern-day rural Chinese trying to cope with the encroachment of big city values...there's hope for independent cinema in China after all.'

     —Jonathan Landreth, China Film Insider

'A colourful Fargo-esque comedy full of twists, noodles and marital bliss....made me giggle and guffaw throughout.'

     —Anthony Gates, EasternKicks.com

'the film's tempo accelerated until I was on the edge of my seat...left me happy and hungry for more.'

     —Richard Yu, Cinema Escapist
