Due to extreme weather, Have a Nice Day will now be screened on Monday 12th March at 6pm in the Light House Cinema, Smithfield.

Director Liu Jian’s gritty, groundbreaking animated feature is a violent and darkly funny take on the gangster genre. A young driver, in a bid to help overturn his fiancé’s failed plastic surgery, steals a bag of money containing a fortune. This places him on the radar of several unsavoury characters from different backgrounds, who are all drawn into the resulting bloody conflict by their own motives. The action literally follows the money as gangsters, criminals or others struggling to get by get their hands on the cash.

THIS CHINESE ANIMATED CRIME FILM DEFTLY MIXES SOCIAL COMMENTARY WITH A PULPY NOIR AESTHETIC TO GREAT EFFECT.
