Diao Yinan directs Hu Ge, Gwei Lun-mei and Liao Fan in this Chinese crime romance where a gang leader on the run and a Wuhan Bathing Beauty prostitute try to scam the reward money for turning him in.
An absolute treat… dark and sexy. The set pieces are thrilling and slightly off kilter like The Coen Brothers of Blood Simple and Fargo times gone. This is a corking crime puzzler with unexpected twists, strange imagery and Lo-Fi but relatable characters. Well worth tracking down.
