Controversial Chinese Animated film HAVE A NICE DAY Coming to Select UK Cinemas

// Hot off the Press


Banned by film festival Annecy and causing controversy across the world, pulse-pumping animated black comedy HAVE A NICE DAY hits UK Cinemas on 23 March 2018. Channeling Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction through a lens of new world, anti-Trump exasperation, HAVE A NICE DAY is a bitingly satirical treat.

At the following UK Cinemas on 23 March 2018:

  • Birmingham
  • Edinburgh
  • Liverpool
  • Manchester
  • Sheffield
  • Southampton

A hard rain is about to fall on a small town in Southern China. In a desperate attempt to find money to save his fiancée’s failed plastic surgery, Xiao Zhang, a truck driver, steals a bag containing 1 million from his boss. News of the robbery spreads fast within the town and, over the course of one night, everyone starts looking for Xiao Zhang and his money…

With plenty of genre thrills, breakneck pacing, witty social satire and black humour, director Liu Jian delivers a whirlwind neo-noir, cementing his place as a pioneering force in independent Chinese animation.
