hilarious account of early 1990s China
9 October 2017 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie yesterday (it was screened in London as an entry in the Longon Film Festival). It's hilarious, so I hope it becomes available to a wider audience soon - most probably in digital format as the director said during the Q&A. The exchanges between Big Wong and his son Little Wong are priceless, but the rest of the cast are spot on as well.
