A fine family drama, there was no over emotions but a simple story and I loved it to the core. I love kids movies as well old people character movies, my heart will melt when I see them struggle. I am really very happy to saw this rare Hong Kong movie and I am glad I picked particularly this.

Andy Lau, vastly known name if anyone familiar with the Hong Kong movies. Many his movies a... read more

To be honest, I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since Roger Ebert chose it as one of the best movies released in 2012, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, eventually, I thought it was indeed a sweet gentle drama and both leads gave some strong performances (it was especially pretty neat to see Andy Lau playing an ordinary guy for once) but I can't say it really blew me a... read more

A good movie

“To be honest, I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since Roger Ebert chose it as one of the best movies released in 2012, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, eventually, I thought it was indeed a sweet gentle drama and both leads gave some strong performances (it was especially pretty neat to see Andy Lau playing an ordinary guy for once) but I can't say it really blew me away. First of all, it is not a critic but I thought that both characters were just so lonely.
