After taking the fall for her gangster boyfriend, Qiao returns to her hometown in search of her former lover, only to discover that the world has changed around her. Her former mafia associates have moved into legitimate businesses, while her boyfriend Bin has found another girl. Qiao seeks revenge and a new identity in Zhangke Jia's powerful new film. "One of Jia's most endearing traits as a director is his wholly uncondescending approach to pop kitsch, and his respect for the emotional outlet it can provide..." (Nick Pinkerton, Artforum)"The film is an arresting and ambitious portrait of a nation how it is now, and how it so recently was." (Vanity Fair)website:
