When the Republic was still young

Yuan Shihai and the warlords

were against Dr Sun.

In the north mountains

there was a bandit named Jiao Long.

This area was

an important strategic site.

Jiao's bandits all had pigtails.

They were known as the Pigtail Army.

The area was constantly fought over.

Yuan sent Jiao his envoy

in a bid to win his support.

Stop! Don't run.

He's over there.

Stop! Don't run.

Stop! Stop, stand still.

Don't run!

I've caught you at last, you bastard!

Your move!

Give us your money.

Stop running!

Have you seen a kid

running for his life?

Roadside lnn.

Have a smoke, they're from Canton.

Really? Let me try one.

A light?


Not bad.

Nephew, isn't it too late

to travel now?

I'm going to stay here for the night.

I'll meet Jiao Long tomorrow.

It's 5 months since I last saw you,

where have you been?

Shanghai and Canton.

It's great being a postman.

Going here, there and everywhere.

Have you thought

about changing your job?

The railway might come here soon.

Once that happens, people will use it

to send their mail.

Don't you think so?

We'll wait and see.

There is no use in hiding.

I'm not hiding, just wrapping up.

How are you, Brother Ma?

Haven't you changed jobs yet?

Isn't it embarrassing?!

- What are you doing?

- We're looking for someone.


Move, get out of the way.

- If you make me go out, I'll die.

- That is your problem.

It's chaos out there. They steal

from us, we steal back from them.

I despise people like you.

OK then, let's split it.

You have it.


Wait for me!

- Why aren't you running?

- If I could, I would.

You've messed us around enough.

I'll finish you off!

These two are my friends.

Respect me and let them go.


What respect?


Yao Jie, how are you?

We've got unfinished business.

I'm Hu, and you are...?

I'm just a postman.

Hey, let's go.

What's the hurry?

We still need to talk.

- About what?

- It's a chance to make friends.

If it's about money,

we can still negotiate.

It's not about money, it's about

going into Jiao's territory.

What's the use of money

if you're dead?

You can't handle it by yourself.

Can your friend here help you?

I'm sorry,

I deliver nothing but letters.


Excuse me.

- What about you?

- Count me out.

But we've made

such a good team before.

I'm not interested

in anything apart from stealing.

Excuse me.

Uncle San, I'm leaving.

It wasn't me.

I didn't cheat.

Believe me, it wasn't my fault.

I thought you might need a bodyguard!

I want to talk to you.

Hey! The postman's back. Come on out.

The postman's back.

Slowly, easy.

Let me take them out first.

Here they are.

Li Chang-Ken.

Wait, wait.

Madam Kuei, this is for you.

This is for Chang.

This is Chung...

It's so slow. I wish we had

a proper postal service.

Chen Shen, Chen Fa-Kuei...

This is for Wong...

Who is this?

That's your father.

- Hurry!

- Wait.

Wang Dai-jin. Ho Shao-hao.

- I thought my dad was a manager!

- Shut up.

Li Choi.

Uncle Chang.

Brother Ma, is there anything for us?

Of course there is.

It's very tasty.

Have a look.

It's chocolate.

It's like mud!

I'm not eating that.

He's just messing with us.

Brother Ma.

This is for you.

There's some money inside.

Mayor, please come in.

We've collected some money for you.

Pretend it's your wages.

There's no hurry.

It's not a lot.

As you know,

there's chaos everywhere.

Everyone's robbing everyone else.

It's OK, I won't be leaving

for a few days anyway.

To tell you the truth,

nobody's got any money any more.

As I see it,

you should change jobs.
