Comments: I know he's popular here so I'll keep the details to myself, but someone needs to explain to me the appeal of Jia ZhangKe. I've seen this, now, and STILL LIFE, and I don't get it.

Summary: Two unemployed slackers, neither with job prospects nor motivation, hang out in sheltered town in China trying to make sense of their aimless and uncertain futures. As youths, they struggle for individual freedom and the social responsibility that comes along with it.
