A scene from Chongqing Hot Pot Photos: CFP A poster for the film
What does Chongqing hotpot have in common with heroes? This common hot dish, favored by gourmets nationwide, shares impressive spirit with heroes。 They‘re both strong, in flavor and in character, and sometimes, undeniably, they can bring people to tears。

Chongqing Hot Pot, the latest film by director and scriptwriter Yang Qing, is about three heroes and one heroine who make literally bloody efforts to save a bleak hotpot business。

It may sound crazy, but that‘s the signature style of Yang, who made his film debut in 2009 with the crime comedy One Night in Supermarket, infusing dynamite energy into everyday life and creating stories that are dark yet exciting, hilarious yet touching。

The new film starts with an intriguing bank robbery。 Four robbers wearing masks of the famous four figures from the classic story Journey to the West rob a bank in Chongqing with knives and guns。

However, their getaway driver waiting outside accidentally gives up their secret to a traffic policeman, so the four are trapped in the bank and will have to find another way out。 Then when they finally enter the vault, one of them discovers a big hole in the floor。
