Kelsey Thomas HAVE A NICE DAY has a lot to say despite its conservative runtime, an unusual feature for a neo-noir, a genre film that tends to glamorize its own complexity. But don’t worry, the plot is more than complex enough, clearly inspired by the likes of the Coen brothers and Quentin Tarantino. The reluctant inhabitants of Liu Jian’s modern Chinese city are full of dreams but strapped for cash. Many want to escape the dismal neon landscape, constantly under construction, to the idyllic countryside that has never seen a bulldozer — if only they had the funding. The story quickly moves beyond Xiao Zhang and even the cash itself, instead zeroing in on a cast of characters with one thing in common: greed. An inventive and interesting film with more political undercurrents than I was expecting — in a good way.
