Incredible multi-layer story with tons of belly laughs!
It's been a hilarious roller coaster ride watching Silver Medalist from Ning Hao, the creator of Crazy Stone, which is believed to be a milestone in Chinese comedy.
Among the numerous expectations on Silver Medalist, big belly laughs embedded in the the natural flow of storyline are top of the list. And what an excellent job done!! The whole movie are filled with elaborate comedic moments, raw but not vulgar, many plot related, bringing 'substantial' laughs. It definitely takes a talented and patient mind to design this many "evolving jokes".
Another big advancement Ning has made is in storytelling, a more complicated multi-layer story, which is rarely seen in Chinese comedy, or any modern Chinese movie, is told in a skillful and meaningful way. Up to six lines of sub stories, yet I had no trouble at all understanding this big plot.
The best Chinese film I've watched in years, highly recommended!
