Two crooks are befriended by the town they set out to rob in this action comedy set in China during the Tang Dynasty. Xue Shisun (Hu Jun) and Chen Liu (Jiang Wu) are a pair of bandits who wander into Kuzhulin Village posing as hunters, and quickly turn their attention to Ma Qi (Li Sa), stealing her money while Chen tries to seduce her daughter Luo Niang (Wang Xiao). It isn't long before Xue and Chen are thrown in jail by the local sheriff, but their luck actually gets worse after they're released, as they run into a band of soldiers who have been looking for them. Ying Ge (Yu Xiaolei), the village's pretty female butcher, comes to the rescue of the bandits, and Xue and Chen ponder the notion that they might be better off going straight and staying in Kuzhulin rather than continuing their life of crime. Xue grows restless and wants to give thieving another try, but when the soldiers return to capture the fugitives and take down the village that's been protecting them, they join forces with their neighbors to defend their new home. Wode Tangchao Xiongdi (aka The Robbers) was an official selection at the 2010 Cinequest Film Festival.
