Crazy Stone (疯狂的石头)

疯狂的石头 Tonight, I giggled through a hilarious Chinese film called "Crazy Stone" ("疯狂的石头"). It is the closing night film at the Pusan Film Festival this year.

In "Crazy Stone," three thieves try to steal a valuable jade that is tightly guarded by a security chief. But the security guards are not the only obstacle these thieves are facing. An extremely unlucky internationally known master thief is also trying to get a hand on this piece of precious jade. What would be the final destination of this piece of crazy stone?

Although the story line might seem familiar as in "Ocean's Eleven," but this is funnier Chinese comedy. During the process of stealing this piece of jade, comic moments never ends and the audience never gets a break from laugh.

There have been many comedies from China recent years led by director Feng Xiaogang (冯小刚). But "Crazy Stone" is a pleasant surprise and funniest comedy from a new director Ning Hao (宁浩). Now I have to finish his other film which is quite different in style.

I am very picky on comedies, but this film works for me, because not only it's funny, it's hilarious.

My rating: 8 out of 10.
