While Xiao lays low in an internet café, a gangster, a hitman and an inventor of X-ray glasses all race to retrieve the loot. The usual panoply of double-crosses, traffic pile-ups and strokes of dumb luck turn their pursuit into a wild sub-Tarantino tale. A brilliant, biting delight that touches on topics both petty and profound, the pacing, cynical black humour and bone-dry wit makes this like no Chinese film you’ve ever seen.
