Mate, a lonely, divorced real estate agent is put in charge by his boss to sell a suburban storage building. The storage is rented by the Chinese, who keep their semi-legal goods here before selling them on the market. The stock comprising of several thousands of boxes is guarded by a Chinese man, Wu, who also lives in the storage. During this forced association a strange friendship begins between the two lonely men, even though Wu is told by his boss to prevent the sale of the storage under all circumstances. The boss is also giving enticing promises to Wu to help him realize his dream: go back to China and create his own football team. The situation is further complicated by the pizza girl, who is equally liked by both men and stirs up the strange life of the storage. Written by
I remember first seeing the trailer of this movie. It was a month after the theatrical release but by that time there were no more screenings. I wish I could have seen it in a movie theater, because this movie really deserves my money.
I really appreciated the creative use of the classic Richard Scarry dictionary in the communication of the Chinese and the Hungarian actors. Also metal fans will appreciate the extreme metal related easter egg in one scene. The situations are clear, even in the unsubtitled Chinese parts. I simply love this movie.
The experienced actors are great as they should be and the amateur actors also do an outstanding job. I recommend it highly.
