Storyline

Old-fashioned, middle-aged Yang Hongqi claims that on a rainy night he saved a university coed from the threat of sexual violence on the outer limits of Nanjing city. He soon begs Gu Guoge, a superstar reporter at Nanjing Newspaper, for public kudos in the press. At first Gu ignores the absurd request, but pushed by Yang's desperate and tenacious attitude Gu begins to look at verifying the case. Finally he finds the victim, Ouyang Hua but no witness. Later, it is revealed why Yang strives so desperately to publicize his heroics: extolled as a model of a national laborer, his father has lived with many medals and commendations on the wall of his hometown and wants to hang Yang's commendation on the wall before his death.

English title: Gimme Kudos
3 February 2006 | by johno-21See all my reviews

I saw this film at the 2006 Palm Springs International Film Festival and of the 35 films I saw there this made the final spot in my top 10. I went to this film not really knowing what to expect from it and was it was not long into the movie where it grabbed my attention and I could see I was going to like it. This is an interesting and entertaining film. This is not a big film but it is a smart film with a very simple plot involving a very simple country bumpkin who works in the big city and is desperately trying to receive public recognition for a good Samaritan role he claims to have been in rescuing a young sophisticated college girl from an attack. Soon a newspaper reporter and the paper's editor, the girl herself and her friends and the man's father and his village are all part of the story. I would rate this a 7.5 of a possible 10 and recommend it.
