Impressive animation and style
18 November 2017 | by Morten_5See all my reviews

28th STOCKHOLM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. DAY 4, NOV 11th 2017. Swedish premiere.

With impressive and stylish animations and a nice humouristic touch, the film offers a satirical criticism on the problems of modern China.

The second feature film from writer-director Liu Jian, after his animated debut "Piercing I" in 2010, "Have a Nice Day" (2017) is a proof of talent and aesthetic vision, promising, with the right financial support for Liu Jian, a filmmaker with clear potential.
