Excellent work

Ho Jun is a student from Beijing who is working in a cattle slaughter house in Tokyo. He lives with other Chinese friends in cheap lodgings. All of them find it difficult to adapt to Japanese culture. To make matters worse Ho Jun and some friends devise a plot to rob a local pinball gambling house - the gangster who owns the house finds them out and threatens to send Ho Jun back to China.

I gotta warn vegetarian there are scenes that you don't want to see. Many Chinese actors and there is Chinese language on the film, but mostly Japanese. Personally i more prefer to watch movie with original soundtrack with subtitles. It's more like a romantic story, the movie discovering immigrants life in japan, the discrimination and pressure of china people Great movie
