Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Ms. Hui, a rare successful female director in the Hong Kong film industry, drew her story from real events, and the movie retains a tonic flavor of the everyday: its drama unfolds simply, without explosive moments but not without emotion
Fresh: Though overlong, Hui's valentine never milks the drama for tears, maintaining an unsentimental focus on the central duo's playful chemistry and the loving way Ah Tao's attention to detail is repaid.
Fresh: Gingerly peels layer after layer of sharp insights into the dynamics of familial love, using compassion and droll humor as its tools.
Fresh: Often poignant but leavened with humor.
