Editorial Reviews

Shi Ba is a self-employed profiteer, skilled in deceiving, bragging, speculating and game-playing. He deceives others, who fool him too. Meeting the dancer, Yu Jing, he decides to reform himself, turning over a new leaf. However, he meets with gangster's blackmail and suffers from wrecking. After the setback, he is not able to recover again and dies in an extreme way. Six months later, his wife gives birth to a boy, called Shi Ba junior. This seems to be retribution of his life.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Huang Jianxin's better films March 14, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Though not as thought-provoking or edgy as Huang Jianxin's earlier and apparently out-of-stock movie Dislocation, this film complements Wang Shuo's novels of an anti-hero's sardonic humor and adamant cynicism about China's authoritarian one-party state and its often bombastic rhetoric. Samsara also reveals the underside of the outwardly glittering cities in the way of Deng's economic reforms, with its portrayal of underworld gang activity and violent enforcers as well as con-man rackets. There is also an interesting love interest in the work, though a troubled relationship of a mismatched couple. No saccharine Hollywood ending of happy ever after in this film, which is more honest than that.
