A hard rain is about to fall on a small town in Southern China. In a desperate attempt to find money to save his fiancée’s failed plastic surgery, Xiao Zhang, a truck driver, steals a bag containing 1 million from his boss. News of the robbery spreads fast within the town and, over the course of one night, everyone starts looking for Xiao Zhang and his money…

This pulse-pumping animated black comedy from director Liu Jian channels Pulp Fiction through a lens of new world, anti-Trump exasperation. A whirlwind neo-noir, cementing his place as a pioneering force in independent Chinese animation.

“If Quentin Tarantino remade “Pulp Fiction” as an animated movie set in modern day China, it might look something like “Have a Nice Day.” — Indiewire
