I just watched it. Loved it...loved it. The film is very dark, talks about the realities of unemployment, drugs, alcohol and the effect of single "Fake Money" to the society. The movie storytelling is quite similar to the movie "Crash" by Paul Haggis.
According to the flyers, it won a special jury pize in 2005 Moscow Film Festival 2005. It is one of the films featured in CineManila 2005 Advance Screening. The following are the other movies featured in the Advance Screening of CineManila

Manderlay -by Lars Von Trier ( Denmark /USA 2005 )

Daybreak - by Bjorn Runge ( Sweden 2003 )
Bishonen - by Yonfan ( Hongkong 1998 )
Hawaii , Oslo - by Erik Poppe ( Denmark/ Norway 2004 )

Sounds interesting. I haven`t heard of the others, yet (besides Manderlay), so Id be pleased with a write-up.
And have fun at the festival!
Today I`ll watch the last film in my hometowns "Festival" of some sorts (only eleven films, cornered by 15 classics) and I`m in a good mood: Goodbye, Dragon Inn (Tsai Ming-liang / Taiwan / 2003).
