Don't forget the social criticism behind this movie
16 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

What this movie criticizes is the integral part of corruption: connection. Those who are able to be promoted is not due to their merits or ability, but simply depends on who he or she knows in the higher tier of bureaucracy. The film did a great job in criticizing this problem that is faced by everyone in China. Hail! A perfect 10!
