Film description

China, the turbulent 1920s. Zhang, the leader of a band of robbers, accidentally becomes a mayor of a town which has been terrorized for years by the unscrupulous Huang. The two deserving opponents will fight a ruthless battle for honour and power. The great strength of the movie lies in its brilliant dialogues and a precise script – the cunning ripostes run faster than bullets, and the scales of victory keep tipping from one side to the other. The whole picture is completed by the imaginative bloody action sequences, satirical political commentary and the ever-present references to classic Westerns. Jiang's auteur piece is a cinematic bullet which hits the bull's eye.
