Tian Xia Wu Zei
Chinese Movie night at the Confucius Institute. No Thieves Under Heaven. Great film, had me laughing all the way thru. Glad I didn't see this before my train ride in China. I'd have been alot more nervous about thieves! The country bumpkin doesn't believe in thieves, and hollers out at the train station, "Are there any thieves here?" So of course the train is full of lone pickpockets, a couple working in tandem, a gang of thieves, armed robbers, and the police. The bumpkin, named Root, a Chinese language pun on the word stupid (ben), has his money stolen several times, saved by the good hearted thieves, by the police, back-and-forth. Hen Hao!
