Nomination Detail

APSA-winning director Liu Jian directs this madcap black comedy set in the lower class underworld of a southern Chinese city. Xiao Zhang is a desperate construction worker and deliveryman who decides to rob one-million yuan from his boss, a local mobster, in order to send his girlfriend to Korea to fix her failed plastic surgery. He soon finds himself in a bigger predicament when a hitman, a gangster and an inventor with x-ray glasses go after both him and the money. A witty, animated film-noir, Have a Nice Day is both a study of desperate individuals and a wild ride that references everything from Tolstoy to Trump to The Godfather on its journey.
