When computer programmer, Leo Fang, is passed up for promotion, he feels it is because he is Chinese, and quits.

Behind the funny, warm and touching stories,
19 December 2003 | by zzmaleSee all my reviews

there are some really good constructive criticism for China and these includes problems that are common in the contemporary Chinese society, such as cutting in in front other people in the line of waiting and disrespect to privacy. Economic progress alone is not enough to make a modern society and this is the greatest contribution of this movie behind its stories.
