Selected to have its French premiere in competition for the Cristal for a Feature Film at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in 2017. However, the Chinese government requested that the work be withdrawn from the festival. Initially resistant, after a request to withdraw it was also made personally by producer Cheng Yang, the organizers of the festival decided to acquiesce to the request out of concern for the safety of Yang, Jian Liu and their collaborators.

Little by way of imagination. A few people left early as the level and depth of thought was obvious. I stayed because it was the last film of the evening for me and I like to give a film a full chance to redeem itself, as they sometimes do. Sorry, but this was a bit painful to me as there was nothing new that hasn't already been done in great blockbuster features. Change the setting, language and animate it. Thin plot, thin character development (typical gangster low lives and peripherals), no laughs, no cries, no pains, just something to pass your time. I could have had a couple drinks at the bar instead.
