Synopsis

A pickpocket struggles to keep up with the current of China’s transformation into an economic powerhouse. Abandoned by his friends and stymied by the terrain shifting beneath him, the thief stumbles upon a chance at love and finds himself confronted with the question: is this any way to live?

MUBI's take

Exploring the pervasive, entrenched connection between crime & capitalism throughout society, Pickpocket hails from A Touch of Sin and Ash is Purest White director Jia Zhangke, who has gone on to become one of the greatest chroniclers of his country. An accomplished debut from a modern master.
