I was born in 80'S in China but love displayed in this film still moved me for the same experience of my past when I grew in my aunt's family and there something gap between me and my relatives. So it's a better reflection of real life even than the zenith sort of film.

Joan isn't dealt with Hollywood's A-budget films for her independent film spirits. And here Joan is precisely show her talent of acting for this mother's features even with her whole body and every organ sensitively though it's little pity her scenes are not that many.

It's too bad for me that I could not comment on it with words, and as Chinese I appreciate Joan Chen.I hope I can see more and more good films for us.
