I don't think it's a very awful movie. Zhang Yuan is one of the best director of the six generation, he got reputation by this movie and "dong gong xi gong"(the first movie about homosexuality in China). The group of guys are obsessive or they call themselves "social outsiders". They have their respective pain and love and lifestyle, but all of those are not symmetric with the social moral standard. Actually, I heard lots of vulgarities, but I don't it's indelicate. People talking like this everyday. It's real life, but I have to say that's a little bit rebellious at that age. It is not a very famous movie in China, maybe it was forbidden, I'm not sure. All in all, it was a radical and an experiment in Chinese movies field.
