So Close to Paradise

1998 Rated NR 1hr 30m

After migrating to Shanghai from rural China, Dongzi (Yu Shi) takes a backbreaking job hauling crates on the waterfront while his slick friend Gao Ping (Tao Guo) dabbles in the criminal underworld. Seeking revenge on a hood who swindled him, Gao drags Dongzi into a kidnapping involving a Vietnamese nightclub singer (Tong Wang) and her chiseling gangster beau. Director Xiaoshuai Wang's taut drama unfolds as an homage to film noir.
