It's a harsh portrait of a brutal segment of society, only relieved by an occasional handsome landscape shot (filmed in the Shaanxi province) that makes Bai's plight all the more compelling.

This is a resolutely tough-minded, beautifully crafted film so compelling as to make bearable watching the nearly unbearable.
