Huang Bo plays a village outcast who's more than a little slow, but basically a well-intentioned and honest man. At the beginning of the film we realize his entire village has been massacred by invading Japanese soldiers, and slowly the film begins to reconstruct the life of the unfortunate survivor through a series of flashbacks. His last and most faithful friend is a cow that he has unexpectedly come into possession of, a relationship we begin to appreciate as the man's past is revealed. Full of unexpected twists and turns, the film certainly manages to hold one's attention despite the seemingly simple story. One of the more interesting Chinese films made this year. Huang Bo previously played in the Chinese comic hit "Crazy Stone".
