A million yuan bag at the center of a noir gangster thriller
18 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Everyone and everything in this movie is a "used to be". The gangster boss who finds out that his money was stolen, used to be involved in more important deals. The hit-man who is supposed to get the money back now works at a butcher's shop. His best days are behind him. The hotel where the main character tries to hide for sure has seen brighter days.

The story is set on the edge of any large Chinese city. The drawing style focuses attention on the fact that decay is everywhere. Even though building sites are part of the cityscape at all times.

Brilliantly ironic, even cynical, with a great soundtrack by the Shanghai Restoration Project this animated movie is a definite recommendation.
