Director Jia Zhangke ('A Touch of Sin', 'Mountains May Depart') brings astonishing visual style to his epic Chinese crime drama. Zhao Tao plays Qiao, who is sentenced to five years in prison after trying to save her gangster boyfriend. Upon her release, she decides to search for him, a journey that takes her deep into the Chinese underworld. Spanning the whole of the 21st century, Jia's film continues his exploration of contemporary Chinese life with dazzling clarity and style. ★★★★ "A strange and haunting gangster epic" - Nicholas Barber, BBC ★★★★ "An often glorious drama about how one woman’s journey from self-sacrificial moll to avenging criminal echoes her country’s embrace of capitalism" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "Richly novelistic" - Danny Leigh, Financial Times
