A harrowing look at disillusioned teens growing up amidst turbulent social changes in contemporary China. Xiao Ji and Bin Bin spend their days looking for anything to break up the monotony of life in the dreary city of Datong. Inspired by American gangster films, particularly Pulp Fiction, video games and anime, the duo hatch a robbery scheme to finance an escape. Haunting and often humorous, Unknown Pleasures offers a realistic look at teen alienation and desperation. "...a fiction with the force of documentary" (J. Hoberman, The Village Voice). In Mandarin with English subtitles.
