A great movie,tears with laugh
9 February 2007 | by rj45-2See all my reviews

From this movie ,you could see people who live in the bottom of China modern society. Poor people showed his brave heart and Chinese traditional virtue.

I think it is the best movie this year. Much more better than Zhangyimou's huge movie ---the Curse of Golden Flower .

Simple script but a great movie!

Rich people but cold heart;

Young lucky boy traveling with dream; Great mum sacrifice for his son ; Young beauty walk on the edge of city; Also the dark side:evil boss whom cheat his employee with fake money;robber on the highway;cheating eatery on the road; ... It is so real,just a portrait of today's China.
