A huge hit in China, this fast-paced drama follows a con man (Andy Lau) and his equally cunning girlfriend (Rene Liu), who head through western China after swiping a shiny new BMW from a gullible businessman. After a chance encounter with a carpenter (Ge You), a trusting young man who is traveling with his entire life savings on the inland bound train leaving Tibet, the couple decide to run a series of scams, with rather unintended results for everyone involved.
A World Without Thieves is less comedic than Feng's 2001 film Big Shot's Funeral, but still carries the same kind of examination of human heart and soul (or lack thereof).
